Low End Quadro FX370 Card for a New System?

I have a fairly low budget to replace my four year old Dell with something that will be less frustrating to use when running SWx2008. The current machine has a fairly low-end video card (FX550) and I'm looking at doing the same again so I can put the most money into the CPU.

I can buy a Quadro FX370 for $120 or get an Xi computer with a Quadro 290 NVS installed for a $40 bump over the cheapest card they offer.

I do not use Realview Graphics nor do I run Photoworks. Is there any reason a higher-end video card would be a wise use of budget? Or maybe another way to ask the same question is "What is the penalty for running a lower performance card"?
