Graphic card for new build: GT430 or GT440

Hi , I am building my fist PC to use at home. I settled on Intel mother board BOXDP67BGB3, i5-2500k processor, 8 GB RAM, 500GB hard drive, 430 W power supply.

I am undecided between following graphic cards:

ASUS GeForce GT 430 ($39.99)

ASUS GeForce GT 440 ($69.99)

I won't be using it for gaming, mainly would do photo editing, some CAD and may be simple video editing someday. Also I am thinking of having both Windows and Linux OS. Not looking for a top of the line graphic card, something adequate for my needs, quiet not consume lot of power. Any recommendations. Thank you

    Is GT 440 adequate for your needs?
    It's certainly not 'top of the line' graphic card. Especially for gaming.

  2. If you are not gaming just use the built in video of the intel processor. The 2500k comes with the HD2000 integrtated GPU which is more than fine for general computing, day to day use, and can manage some light gaming should the need arise.

    And i agree the HD3000 will be enough.
