good video card for 27" monitor - not gaming

recommend a good vid card for a 27" monitor that will be used for photoshop HQ color and movie watching, not really for games. don't need dual monitor hookup really. budget $100 or so probably. thanks! Msongs PS - currently have an nvidia GEforce 9400 gt - maybe that's enough eh?
