What's a good upgrade from my VisionTek Radeon hd3870? I don't game, just watch videos and some Photoshop work. Not interested in overclocking (obviously). Is there a better, quieter ATI card to upgrade to? Or should I let sleeping dogs lie?

If you don't game, why are you asking in the gaming forum rather than the hardware forum? If noise is a problem, get a fanless card.

Exactly. It's pointless to upgrade your gpu if you aren't using it for gaming or heavy graphics rendering in which you aren't. Your current gpu is plenty fast and then some for what you need it to do.

Thanks, I guess I'll stick with what I have. Sorry about posting this in gaming. Being a newbie, I didn't realize that the appropriate place to post was Hardware. Thanks for all of your valuable input.
