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.
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.
