I am going to buy components for a new build (my first) on Monday. I don't play any games, but I do use photoshop. I am looking for a graphics card around $100. The parts I have selected for the build are listed below.

I am planning on reformatting the hard drive and the optical drive from my current machine, which is a Dell XPS 435MT that I bought in 2009, and using those components in the new build. (I will take advice about that as well) I am going to use the SSD as my boot drive and keep all the my programs on there and only keep data files on the hard drive. My monitor is a DELL S2409W and has 1920x1080.
I know the mobo has integrated graphics, but I thought I might need a little more considering my use of photoshop. I would like to spend under $100, but a little more won't hurt me too badly.
Thanks in advance for any help.
