Hi Oz, that monitor of yours is a beast so you´ll want a pretty good graphics card to go with it. Although I´m a more of a Nvidia fan, the Radeon 4870 has been getting some really write-ups. Seeing as you´re not a gamer it should be more than enough for your purposes. You could certainly watch Full-HD movies with it. What O/S are you using? Linux tends to have problems with ATI cards!!
Oz, what a coincidence, I just got an e-mail newsletter from Gamespot and they have a $200 graphics card shootout. And most of the cards are below $200, though the very best require you to break your piggy bank for a few dollars more. :)
