Disregard this comment.
Since he doesn't game, a 650 / 650 Ti 2Gb is all he need at minimum...

With no gaming on the rig I would agree with Athache, get a 650 or 650ti and save some money. All the high end cards are great for gaming and cost accordingly. With little to no gaming there is no reason to have an expensive gaming card.

I won't get into specific card details, but I think the best way to pick a vidcard is to decide on a price range, sort by positive reviews, compare specs, and then cross-reference with in-depth tech reviews when available. If you like a brand or model, weigh that against the results. This system works with most components, especially if you don't have very specific preferences.

What graphic programs do you use & what type of games do you play when in the mood?

honestly, get a quality PSU around 650 watts. Unless you're going tri-sli/cross fire, there's nothing really that needs THAT much power (unless you're planning on going back in time and purchasing a 6990 or something)

Solidworks, PTC Creo 2.0, and Maya run faster on Firepros.

Autocad runs fastest on Geforce (or Kepler Quadro which is the same speed but more expensive and has no extra features)...

Bunkspeed and other iray stuff only runs on NVIDIA because NVIDIA owns iray ; Vray/Luxrender and others run on AMD also

I've personally used both ATI and nVidia Graphics Cards for editing Videos (using Adobe Premiere Pro CS5) and both work perfectly Fine. Im currently using GTX 670 FTW.
Someone used to tell me ATI for Video Editing nVidia for Gaming, Any Decent Video Card will be good enough.

How much RAM are you going to be getting though?

Processor: i7-3930k
Processor Cooler: H100
Mobo: Asus P9X79 Deluxe or the Asus Sabertooth X79
Harddrive: 2 TB WD Caviar Black
SSD: Samsung 840 Pro 256GB
Case: CM Storm Stryker
Optical Drive: Asus BW-1281ST
PSU - 1050 Corsair HX

The only thing I need is a graphics card. Most of the people here helped by say go with the GTX 670, 680 or the AMD 7970, 7870. I don't really know which one to choose. Please help me with this issue. Thanks !!!
Go with AMD 7970, i have it and its freakin perfect!

If you spend about $370, you can get your hands on either a 670 or a 7970. In that case, the 7970 will be a better choice,

If you are looking for more workstation-oriented graphics, well that's a different story.

I'm surprised the Titan fanboys didn't come in and tell you to spend $1k on a gaming card.

those two have BIG things in common, just FYI
