Best Video Card for Video Editing in Premiere, AE

I bought Dell Precision T5400 several months back. It came with two xeon x5260 @ 3.33 GHz processor, 16 GB RAM and Quadro FX 1700. I am looking for the best ($300-400 price range ) video cards for video editing in Premiere and AE, and DVD and BluRay Authoring in Encore.
I know the video card need to be PCI Express x16 Gen 2 or 3, but there are so many and I am not sure which one to choose. if someone can help me it would be gladly appreciated.

  1. I would recommend any card that has at least 2GB vram. Depending on the kinds of things you are doing, you may benefit from 3GB. If you want to save some cash, you can go for a Radeon HD 7850 2gb (not the 1gb version). Within your price range, you can get the Radeon HD 7950, which will come with 3GB vram.
  2. This is Adobe's official supported card list. It would be wise for you to not stray from it. The Quadro 2000 is near your price range. I would stay with the Quadro line of cards and not venture into the gaming cards(GeForce series)

    AMD Radeon HD 6750M (only on certain MacBook Pro computers running OS X Lion (10.7.x) with a minimum of 1GB VRAM)

    They get pretty expensive after the Quadro 2000.... Would be nice if we could all have Quadro 6000's but who has an extra 2000.00 for a video card? =D
  3. get the msi r7870 2gb graphics card which is very cheap and you could afford two for your budget
