Intel drivers are not crap.. but if you want an Nvidia card I suppose any GT440 would be a fine choice.
There is a more limited amount of card MFG for the Nvidia stuff it seems, not sure if one brand vs another would matter much. Asus is generally a brand I trust for other components.. so that might be a good choice.
Personally I have trouble spending up on an Nvidia when I know the AMD stuff performs higher. But if your not a gamer and looking for ultra critical viewing, 24p bug mods and all the crazy stuff I don't bother with I suppose Nvidia has a place. It's a much better card for HTPC than it is in general or for gaming IMO.
