Hello and welcome to the forums
Well,Graphic designing benefit more from a faster CPU than VGA so definitely upgrade your CPU to a Phenom II X4 and 4GBs of RAM.
As for a VGA,cards like GTS 450/HD 5750 are fine.

Agree with maziar, you want the fastest CPU/RAM you can get, video card is secondary.

For pro work with that system you should look at either nVidia Quadro NVS models or ATI Crossfire. The lower end of those would work OK as your system without a full upgrade won't need a faster card.

Yes, which is funny to get the name wrong because I'm installing a dozen of these cards right now.

Thanks a lot for ur concern Maziar.
but a doubt, In a some article I read that a combination of low-end processor and a high-end graphic card would give best pest performance, isn't that correct?

Not necessarily because programs like 3D max need a combination of powerful CPU and VGA.

For professional 2D and 3D work your best option is a Quadro however they are not cheap but the quality of drivers and support make it all worth. Don't let my poor grammar throw you off. Don't fall for a cheap FireGL as their poor driver support make them an option only as a last resort. Performance in this area comes second and quality knowing that the job is going to get done reliably is what counts.
