Processor is 3.3GHz Intel® Core™ i3 I upgraded the memory from 6gb to 16gb DDR3-1333/PC3-10600 as well. I added a Nvidia GeForce 8400 GS (Intel HD Graphics 2000 on board) to the PCI Express x16 slot. This card was mistreated by the previous owner (my wife ) and is on it's last legs. My screen is a Viewsonic VP2365-LED 23-Inch Wide e-IPS LED 1920x1080 resolution (http://www.viewsonic.com/products/vp2365-led.htm). The power supply is a ATX 300w unit.
With a max budget of 200 for BOTH card and power supply, what are your recommendations? My goal is NOT to play games. I'm a photographer and I NEED a better card than my current 8400.
Fast answers are REALLY appreciated! I have a ton of work to process and I need a reliable card!
Thank you all in advance!

PS. I know is not the right thread, but If I wanted to upgrade the processor, could I put a i7 on my Acer IPISB-VR rev: 1.01 mobo? If yes, which would be the best for the buck?
Thanks for the prompt answer. Are there any other models you would suggest?
