I suggest you a Radeon HD 5770. It costs about 170$. Anyway, I got a 4800 Series and it works perfectly. Plus, it's cheaper. :yes:
My PC can run Photoshop, 3ds Max 2010, Corel VideoStudio X2 and some other programs and I have tons of music (more than 4000 mp3s=20 gb) on my harddisk.
I got an Intel Core 2 Quad CPU 2,5 GHz and 4 gb RAM (you can extend that later). About the sound card, you could take a SoundBlaster or just take whatever there is in the computer.

You see this little hole? This moth's just about to emerge. It's in there right now, struggling. It's digging it's way through the thick hide of the cocoon. Now, I could help it - take my knife, gently widen the opening, and the moth would be free - but it would be too weak to survive. Struggle is nature's way of strengthening it." - John Locke

Yeah, I did. It cost about 900€, so about 1100$. But I also bought two disc drives, sound system and some other things.

Just to know, what vgames can you run with it?
The best way to test graphic cards is trying the latest game released :D

If all you want to do is watch vids in HD and run multiple programs then you really don't need an expensive Graphics card. Invest most of your money on the CPU(preferably a quad core if you're going to be doing any video editing/encoding) and RAM and find a nice budget graphics card.
