Default pro video card or regular for my pc need some advice

so i was thinking since a pro video card is optimized for 2d
should i get one for my pc.
i dont play video games or do any 3d graphics.

what i mostly use it for:
internet,photoshop and other image editing and music editing etc.

and watch a movie or two ocassionally.

I HATE FIREFOX!!!!!!!I don't care if its what you use!!! I use IE and will continue using it...

all of those tasks are hardest on the cpu. any midranged and priced video card will suit your needs, but performance will be most increased with a new computer.
