What video card for video conversion should I use?

Specs: Windows 10, i7-4790/16gb
I want to convert some videos and I am going to upgrade an Optiplex 9020 with an i7-4790 cpu, a 1tb SSD, Intel HD 4600 graphics with 16gb of memory and I know that I will have to upgrade the power supply. But I am unsure what video card I should use for this purpose. I don't want to spend a fortune($140-$180). One with 4gb of DDR5 memory should work fine. AMD or Nvidia? All replies and opinions will be respected and appreciated.

any specific programs you will be using?

for video conversion i'd recommend nvidia (just because of cuda acceleration). specifically the GTX 1650 Super 4GB with your budget. (best bang for buck in the price range)

if for some reason its too expensive in your country, go down to the GTX 1650 (non-super) and then to a gtx 1050 TI 4GB

as for a power supply, anything 350watt or higher 80+ bronze or better should do.

if you can get a 75watt model, they will probably come without a 6 or 8 pin, as they can pull 75watt through the PCIE slot. So if you already have a good powersupply (300w+) but it doesnt have any PCIE power cords get the GTX 1650 non-super instead.

GTX 1650 super = 1650 + 25 % (896 --> 1280cc) & 100watt

GTX 1650:
CUDA cores: 896.
Base clock: 1,485MHz.
Boost clock: 1,665MHz.
Memory: 4GB of GDDR5 memory with a 128-bit memory bus.
Memory bandwidth: 128GB/sec.
TDP: 75W.
Price: $149.

Great Info! Thanks for the reply. You covered it very well. I am not, nor will I ever be a 'gamer', but I wanted some performance from the video card for the purposes that I stated. All these years later, I know I can still come here and get some pertinent and intelligent answers. Again, thanks and ciao.
