Help choosing PCi express card

Hi
I am building my first desktop using :

1. A Gigabyte LGA 1156-CPU P55A-UD3R board with an Intel 5i-661 processor, this processor has inbuilt graphics using DDR3 memory.

2. The Gigabyte board has no monitor connection to plug into.

3. Question which PCi express card should I fit to enable a connection to my monitor utilising the Intel processor's graphics ?

I am not into high 3-D games specification but do a lot of photography work.

I see a new Sapphire HD 5450MB DDR3 PC1E card advertised in this months magazine, would this be an appropriate card ?

Many thanks for any help
Regards
Doug.

What is your budget?

any 5 series cards, the more you pay the better the card but you dont need a top card unless you play demanding games.
