IMO with the money you save on the motherboard and psu, get a better graphics card. Though I know nothing of workstation cards, from looks of that one it looks extremely weak compared to gaming cards.
It's not how big, but how many... Some folks can use many monitors for cad, plus even though the cards looks like a real low even, 9400, It works differently.
But, as you said, its a low profile/low power card, it doesn't need much.. But all the parts will draw decent loads.
If yuo do plan on getting better gpus than you will need more than the 550vx.. But how big is based on your plans.
