Looking for a graphics card to play 1080 video

My on board graphic chip stutters slightly on 1080p video.

Can anyone suggest a budget card that will play HD video fine and has a DVI or preferable a HDMI connector.

It needs to be PCI-E, quiet and not need any additional power supply

I've got a 8800gt and that is fine.
If you have a good enough CPU then you won't need a dedicated graphics card? I think
Playing video is a CPU task not a graphics card one, the only assistence a graphics card will provide is help decoding certain codecs (H.264 and VC-1) which are used for some HD video such as blu-ray disks. If you want perfect playback of all 1080p content then you need a better CPU.

If you do just want it for those codecs accelerated by the graphics card then most of them will do - an ATI 4350 is a good choice as it's cheap and can provide audio over hdmi without additional cables.
Thanks for the tips guys.

It is mainly H(X).264 compressed video I am trying to play. Mainly I just need need a cheap card less than £50 that has DVI or HDMI ports

Perfect thanks :)
