The 8400GS that I put in my computer about 4 years ago with the intention to upgrade is really starting to struggle; I think it's time to get something new. I don't have a specific budget in mind but would like to spend as little as possible without setting myself up for another upgrade too soon.

I currently have a 2x 1680x1050 setup, although I'm thinking about adding a third monitor (probably run off the old 8400gs); I run ubuntu and use the most graphically intense use is generally HD video. Fullscreen flash video is the biggest problem at the moment- some sites it just breaks down to completely unwatchable.

Could someone please suggest some suitable cards?
Thanks a lot,
Mike
