Stable non-gaming GPU

Hi Everybody,

I have recently build my new CPU, but still running on onboard GPU.

I don't have any high end gaming requirements so I am looking for silent, best for bucks and power efficient GPU.

BUDGET RANGE: $100 - $150 (+/- 10-15% is fine)

USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Lots of browsers, Compiler (Visual Studio), sometimes photoshop but not so often, very very low gaming rarely

CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY: running onboard Intel HD 4000 right now, PSU is SeaSonic S12II 520W

OTHER RELEVANT SYSTEM SPECS: Intel i7 3770K, Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H , Corsair Vengeance 8gb x 2

OVERCLOCKING: Maybe in future, right now it's more than enough


MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1 x 1920x1080 and 1 x 1920x1200

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Need 3 display support. I don't use any heavy graphics software like CAD or anything like that.

As I live in India, please provide more than one option due to availability issues.

Something like this:

Asus Radeon 6570 low-profile card - this is a descent card, you won't be running the latest games on max graphics, but it can handle low-medium range. I'm not so sure how you'll do with a 3-monitor setup however..

EDIT: If you can get the low-profile 7750 for under $150, then definetely go with that. That is an excellent card, and will run multiple monitors

Any advisable workstation GPU? or would it be out of budget?

You should be able to get Quadro 400/600 or Firepro V3900 ~$150, but those 2 only have 2 Video Outputs.

Other solution is, buy Quadro 400/600 or Firepro V3900 to drive you 2 displays, and use Intel HD4000 to drive the 3rd display.

EDIT : Make sure those setup will work out as you wanted them to, personally I never tried running workstation GPU and Intel HD4000 at the same time. I know it will work on non workstation GPU and Intel HD4000.
