Personally I would get this card for a non-gaming system:

It is AGP x8 with 64MB DDR memory.
GeForce MX4000

[size=0.5]Full Aluminium ThermalTake Case
Asus A7N8X-E-Deluxe
AMD Athlon XP 3200+ *400 FSB* Barton (2.2GHz)
ThermalTake Volcano 11+ Xaser Edition Air Cooling
1024MB Corsair TwinX XMS 3200 (Dual Channel 2x512) 2-3-2-6
2x WD Raptors (10krpm 8MB Cache) 36.7GB using RAID -0
Video Logic SonicXplosion 5.1 Soundcard

I have no idea how the MX4000 performs, but since she'll be doing a bit of graphics editing I'd suggest a 128mb card

Thank you all for your suggestions. I was on my way to Best Buy today anyway, so I might check that deal out. My only question would be is PNY a good manufacturer, or should I pay a little more and get an ATI made Radeon 9200?
