What is your budget? At this point you will need a different case because of the motherboard form factor, more RAM for photoshop, and a different PSU like the Antec Earthwatts Green 430W

EDIT: I didn't see that you already had 2gb of RAM. That still won't be enough for any sort of photoshop. You will need at least 4gb. Do you already have an OS disk that you will be using?
yes i do. i have xp pro 64bit

If you add 39$ you get double the performance with this card :
4850 1GB

EDIT : I Strongly suggest you to take this card

Im not sure about AMD Athlon II X3 455 Rana unlocking ability, but I think I have reed somewhere it can be unlocked. If you aren't going for that HDD, just invest 20$ more in cpu/gpu.

I still suggest the Antec Earthwatts 430W. It is much better than that PSU
