Exclamation Video Card Help Please!

I've been in the process of ordering all the supplies for building a computer over break. I'm stuck on what Video card to get. I've been reading A LOT of information on what to look for and there's just so many of them that I'm having a hard time deciding, and I don't want to pick the wrong one, since I'm building it for my sister. If you have any free time I'd appreciate the advice or recommendations.
Here's what she does and wants:
-She wants to have 2 monitors hooked up.
-Works with adobe photo shop.
-DOES NOT play games.
-Wants to be able to work at home sometimes. She's a computer programmer, .NET developer
-Will have a blu-ray player.
-She's a very good multi-tasker.

The motherboard she has: GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD3R

GIGABYTE Motherboard GA-X58A-UD3R X58 LGA1366 ATX Socket B Mainboard Core i7 CPUs DDR3 USB3.0 SATA 6Gb/s 1394a Dual BIOS 3-way Crossfire SLI-Best Computer Online Store Houston Buy Discount Prices Texas-Directron.com

Thanks for your time

It doesn't sound like she needs the most powerful video card there is.

FWIW, I'm using a Radeon HD 4850 in my rig and it runs Photoshop no problem.
