    Default Graphic Card Help...Any Other Suggestions :/

    I have an HP M9400F Running Windows 7 Pro 64bit. The computer came with a ATI Radeon HD 3650

 - HP Pavilion M9400F(FK790AA) Desktop PC Phenom X4 9750(2.4GHz) 8GB DDR2 750GB HDD Capacity ATI Radeon HD 3650 Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit

    I want to run Sony Movie Studio Platinum 12

    What would be my best graphics card upgrade option? Im leaning Quadro 600 or higher but Im at my wits end trying to find what is compatible, whether I need to upgrade the 350w power supply.

    I would like to run dual monitors and have a little more than what I need. I don't want to have to upgrade again for awhile I guess.

    Would the Quadro 600 be compatible? That would take me from 512mb gpu to 1gb but a guy at Best Buy said it doesn't pay unless I go up to 2gb which takes me up to Quadro 2000D which is $250 more. I would do that if it doesn't really pay to even get the 600.

    Sorry Im lost when it comes to this. Any advice on the graphics card or anything else i should upgrade is greatly appreciated
