It's really down to you. Both machines will work great, the fact that the 3800+ works faster than the D 820 doesn't mean that the D is a bad processor.

Do you think I would be better to spend some extra money and upgrade the stock graphics card, or will it be sufficent?

Sure. Choose the lowest graphics card option, then sell it off on ebay and get a new card to replace it.
