Please recommend me graphics for video and image editing.

I am looking for something inexpensive, quiet and stable to be used
on dual core board under XP. This is NOT a gaming rig.

Would PCIex ASUS GF 7300 GT 256 MB (EN7300 GT) be an overkill?
the 7300GT would be enough (for your budget), but you can also try a GeForce 8500GT and have some future-proof, Costs almost the same and since the 8500 are from newer generation, performs better.

+1 the 8500gt is just a little more and is going to be a lot more future proof and more bang for your buck.
