Upgrade - still pondering

After much (good) advice received on AMD upgrade, I wonder if the following Pentium meets with approval? (based against AMD XP2200 & msi K7N2-L)

msi845pe max-l mobo (ms6580 v2.0)
pentium 4 2.4 pc533 (northwood)
ddr-dimm PC2700 512 mb

Is the board up to it (seems cheap price) - not into games, but a bit of digital editing. What is biggest reasonable HD i could expect to use?

Have been advised that msi mobo is PANTS - so, wondering if Abit BG7 would be a good compromise for my P4 2.4 (533).

will 350W PSU be sufficient, or perhaps 400?

Finally, decent graphics card for the little tinker? (not asking much)
