Since you do not do any heavy graphics and only use Gnome on occasion
any card will do.    In your case it is hard to ignore any card.
The cards with closed source acceleration like nVidea will run X
fine without the acceleration provided by closed source (i.e. vesa mode).

I always look for digital output as my display has that option
and I can see the difference (with my glasses on).   Look for 
last years card on sale.  Select one that does not have an onboard fan (lower power).
