I have just purchased Asus Sabertooth 990FX Motherboard, and i have absolutely no idea what graphics card to buy. The Motherboard's I/O port doesn't come with either HDMI or VGA. So, a graphics card is a must.
Basically, this system won't be used for any gaming whatsoever, until early next year, that's when i'll buy some great graphics cards. So, a cheap one will do nicely - until then. I'm looking to spend between £20 - £40. It will be used for 1080P HD Blu-Ray Movies and HD internet content, also i will be using Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit. I'm not sure if 64-Bit needs a good graphics card or something? but if it does, i'll need a more suitable recommendation(s) for around my set price range.
To help out some readers that are not familiar with this mobo, i'll list my specs. Also, i can see 4 PCIE 2.0 x16 Slots on this mobo, but i only want one card for now.

Heck, I'd imagine almost anything you could toss in there would do the trick for you. Even my old 8800GTS did blu-ray flawlessly. I'd say even a 2xx series from the used bin would be a good temporary holder until you buy a card next year. At least that way you'll have the next gen either in your grasp or really close.
