Default Building new computer

I am building a new computer and am into Cad programs and general graphics (really like photoshop) and some gameing
Basicaly I guess is what I am wondering? Is this a good plan and will graphics card work well with gameing (is 4x but can't afford new 7110).

Intel Pentium 4 3.0GHZ 800FSB
Mainboard - IC7-G Max II
Memory - Kingston - 512MB 400MHz DDR PC3200 ECC DIMM 3-4-4 (X4)
Graphics - 3DLabs Wildcat III 6110
Hard Drive - 120 gig Western Digital (X3)
Power Supply - 450 ?
O/S - WinXP Pro

And whatever is left will come from my DELL 8250 (just to fill in the holes for now).

How much are you willing to spend on a video card? I'd upgrade to 8x if you're into gaming.

ATI Radeon 9550 256Mb 8x

what about the radeon 9600 w/256mb ddr, it's like $128 at newegg and is built by sapphire, who makes ati's test cards, so when you buy a card directly from ati you're actually buying a sapphire.

looks like I am going to be stuck with the card I got till next spring when I got a few more dollers (damn). Its a nice card though for what it is. Just found out it is only 64mg as it splits 128 between monitors (another damn). OH well. Thanks for your reply.
