i just got a new job doing graphic design and my pc is a few years old. its got an ASUS tek p4p800-vm motherboard with an intel 865g chipset. its got a pentium 4 3.00 ghz processor and a 256 mb video card that clocked in at 472.5 mhz with 2 gigs of ram. my hardrive is onlt 120gb and is almost completely filled.
do i need to replace this motherboard?
is my pentium 4 fast enough to handle a bigger video card?
what 512mb video card will run every game and program on max res?
what harddrive can fit in my pc?
is there a liquid cooled case that is quite and can keep my hardware from frying?

iam really in a rush here i would appreciate any an everybodies help.

Gaming video cards and graphic design video cards aren't the same. I don't know the details, but there are differences and you should look into that before buying a gamer's card that's not optimized for your needs.

If you're really in a rush you may just want to buy a workstation that's designed for what you want to do.
