SAPPHIRE HD4850 512meg DDR3 HDMI Adapter Dual DVI HDTV-Out
Item Code viSAx_hd4850_512

That should hold you up. If you're not gaming, even these parts will be overkill.

Since you're not gaming.

1) The processor is fine. It's overkill really. You can easily get away with a dual core, or even a single core.
2) The video card you choose isn't worth it. Why spend so much when you're not going to use it? You could just use the onboard video and save yourself $300+.
3) 8GB of RAM won't give you any extra performance unless you're editing. Stick with the 4GB you have at home.
4) An 800 watt power supply is too much. You could get away with a 500 watt.

It's your money.

1) A 4850 will perform as equally/better than the card you chose, at your resolution. It's not going to fully be utilized because of the low resolution.

2) A power supply with too much power is bad. You get more power wasted and more heat throughout your system.

You want a good quality power supply. The flower one you had was most probably a very low quality one. The one I previously posted should do you fine.

I would suggest these:

PALIT nVidia GTS 250 0.8ns 1024MB. It costs less than the 9800GTX+ and performs faster.

ANTEC 550watt NEO PSU MODEL : NEOPOWER 550. The power requirements for the GTS 250 video card recommend at least 450W. The Neo 550 PSU will supply more than enough power and is a high quality unit at a decent price.
