Morning all

Can anybody help me pick a decent graphics card to go with the following motherboard?

I7 - MSI X58 Pro SLI/X-fire 6400FSB DDR3 2000 x6 X58 chipset

I'm buying a custom built PC from cougar extreme and I have a choice of the following GFXs:

512Mb 8400 GS PCI Express Nvidia DDR DVI
ATI HD 4350 512MB PCI Express DDR DVI
512Mb GT210 PCI Express Nvidia DDR DVI
1024MB 9400GT PCI Express Nvidia DDR DVI
ATI HD 4650 1024MB DDR3 PCI Express DDR DVI
1024mb 9500GT PCI Express Nvidia DDR DVI
512MB GT220 PCI Express Nvidia DDR DVI
1024Mb GT220 PCI Express Nvidia DDR DVI
ATI HD 4670 1024MB DDR3 PCI Express DDR DVI
ATI HD 4730 512MB GDDR5 PCI Express DDR DVI
1024Mb 9600GT PCI Express Nvidia DDR DVI
ATI HD 4850 512MB PCI-E 2.0 PCI Express DDR DVI
1GB 9800GT PCI Express Nvidia DDR DVI
512Mb GTS250 PCI Express Nvidia DDR DVI
1GB GTS250 PCI Express Nvidia DDR DVI
ATI HD 5750 1024MB GDDR5 PCI Express DDR DVI
ATI HD 5770 1024MB GDDR5 PCI Express DDR DVI
896Mb GTX260 PCI Express Nvidia DDR DVI
ATI HD 4890 1024MB GDDR5 PCI Express DDR DVI
896Mb GTX275 PCI Express Nvidia DDR DVI
ATI 5850 1024MB PCI Express DDR DVI
1024Mb GTX285 PCI Express Nvidia DDR DVI
ATI 5870 1024MB PCI Express DDR DVI
1792Mb GTX295 PCI Express Nvidia DDR DVI

The PC will be used for video editing and web design and will run a i7 cpu. I was recommended the spec on here a few months but just struggling with the GFX.

Cheers for any help

If you don't intend playing graphics intensive games then an ATI HD 4350 will be sufficient.
