Graphics cards advice, please

Am about to order a pc (AMD Athlon 64x2 3800, 1mb RAM, etc...). Problem is, I have a choice of graphics cards. The one they offer as standard is ATI Rad X800 GTO but for about £20 more I can have nVidia 6800, for about £25 more I can have ATI Rad X850 Pro or nVidia 7600.
The pc will be used for fairly normal home use - bit of video editing, maybe, ordinary, not too advanced gaming etc... Bearing this in mind, which card should I go for?
Thank you.

If I were you, I'd go for the x800gto, by the look of reviews I've seen it has a very similar performance to nvidia 6600gt, which will play new games very well, therefore even you wanted to play games the x800gto will do you nicely......It all depends on your budget, but you could do a lot worse than go with the cheepest option.
