It depends on the version of photoshop you have
5.5 and previous versions can use nVidia graphics cards to do some of the repetitive processing
6 uses a completely new engine and can use nVidia or AMD equally well

Read the thread at the top of the forum about how to ask for advice .
Nice monitors .

They all use opengl not cuda but cs6 adds opencl in the mix. None of them have native cuda acceleration or plugins.

Gpu isn't going to make a difference for color. It will just output an rgb signal, it's the monitor that needs to be able to display the correct color. Your eizo monitor is better than a dell st series and even the u2312.

It definitely needs more ram and an ssd. I'd also suggest changing mobo too, no point in getting micro atx when the atx version is cheaper.
