I am a senior in high school and looking to build a PC setup to replace my iMac. I edit HD DSLR video in Adobe Premiere and need help picking a graphics card that will make editing a breeze. My current setup so far is:

Intel Core i7-2700K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor $290.00

ASRock Z77 Extreme4 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard $104.99

Corsair Vengeance 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1600 Memory $71.99

Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive $73.75

Intel 520 Series Cherryville 120GB 2.5" Solid State Disk $119.95

Corsair 400R ATX Mid Tower Case $74.99

Antec EarthWatts Green 380W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply $42.99

Asus DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS DVD/CD Writer

I'm looking into nvidia geforce gtx series cards, but am unsure whether to get 1GB or 2GB or what. I dont want to spend more than $150-$200 ideally on the video card. Any suggestions on my build? Thanks
