    Hello. I have a question with a sincere honest answer or opinion. Looking to buy a new graphics/video card.

    Okay, I found 2 graphics/video cads I like that are comparable in some ways.

    Which one would you choose?

    A. EVGA GeForce GT 440 1024MB DDR3 PCI-Express 2.0 Graphics Card Video Card 01G-P3-1441-KR

    B. XFX ATI Radeon HD 5670 1 GB DDR5 DVI/HDMI/DisplayPort PCI-Express Video Card HD567XZNF3

    The best two I could find that are similar. Both use one expansion slot -- what I want! Major trade offs: 2 DVI ports -or- 1 DVI and DP port; DDR3 -or- DDR5.

    I am planning to spend $100 max. on a graphics/video card. Please do not reference me to a better graphcs/video card, unless there is a *direct* model upgrade replacement for it. 

    Okay, my video graphics habit implications I know you're asking yourself...

    A. I have Windows 7 Professional 64-bit. I have 8 GB of RAM. My motherboard is the ASUS P5Q.
    B. Basically, I am NOT a true blood gamer. To be honest, I rarely play games with the inherent downloaded Microsoft Games in Windows 7 at times. Bottom line: Not a gamer. I know this is valuable to know.
    C. I am using the DVI connection cable for an (1) older 19 inch Samsung SyncMaster 930B LCD Monitor.
    D. I do alot of photo and video editing with the latest Corel and Adobe professional products plus other like-products. I watch online streaming videos too. I want the best resolution.
    E. I use the "highest screen" resolution AT ALL TIMES (1280 x 1024). I never switch out to a lower resolution.

    Please reply.

    Thank you!

    well i personally would go with A but my choice could be biased namely the fact that i have had bad experiences with ATI
