Question Video card

I am in the process of building a computer that will act as a kind of server for my parents' house. When they say server, they just want a computer with a lot of storage that they can back everything up to. I have everything figured out until now, I am hesitant on a video card. I was going to put an Evga 7900GS (My favorite card) because my step-dad is into video editing and what not. I'm not sure if that is the best card for that, and was wondering if anyone else had any recommendations. My budget for the card is stiff at 150, but just any advice on a good card for video editing for him.

(By video editing, I don't mean 3d rendering)

Thanks for any help

idk much about video editing but as long as its not 3d rendering then he should be fine with a 7900GS

If he's into some heavy stuff, an ATI All-In-Wonder would be nice.

Video editing doesn't really utilise the GPU. You'd be better off getting a cheap GPU and putting in some more ram.
