Nvidia Graphic card for Studio XPS 435MT

Hi all, I own a DELL Studio XPS 435MT with an ATI radeon HD 4800 series that just died on me last weekend. I am mostly using my PC for Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop and a bit of Premiere. I am thinking of replacing the GPU by a Nvidia Quadro card. I am wondering if the K620 would be enough and suited for this computer? My other option is the K2000D. What would be the best? And, are those cards compatible with my PC? Thanks in advance for letting me know. Regards

K620 is nowhere near the HD4800.

K4200 would be the replacement.

Thanks for your quick answer SpeedStep. I hope you don't mind me asking, I don't understand how the radeon could be faster and or better when it is a 512MB Vram card when the K620 is a 2GB Vram card??? Sorry i am a real novice in graphic cards. If you could help me that would be great! Thanks

The amount of ram on a card has Nothing to do with its performance.   The amount of shaders and the width of the GPU bus does.

I am using the Sapphire HD 6700 series card - mainly due to the low power consumption when compared to the 4800 series which came with this.

Actually I am surprised that your original GPU lasted well for so many years. Mine died after 3 or 4 years.

Higher GPU's need more power so you need to upgrade the power supply as well - and I did not want to go down that path back then.

You got to be <removed> me! The card costs over 1000.
