Default 500 - 600 Build

Hi guys just new here was wondering if someone could check out my first build for me. Ive got a budget of 500 to 600 to build a pc for gaming and using software like photoshop / flash / after-effects.

CPU - Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 Socket LGA775 processor - Misco.co.uk
MotherBoard - Gigabyte G41-ES2L Socket LGA775 Motherboard - Misco.co.uk
RAM - Crucial 2GB PC6400 DDR2 RAM - Misco.co.uk
Video Card - XFX Radeon HD4770 512MB PCI-Express Graphics Card - Misco.co.uk
Hard Drive - Scan.co.uk: 1TB Samsung HD103SJ Spinpoint F3, SATA 3Gb/s, 7200rpm, 32MB Cache, 8.9 ms, NCQ, OEM
Optical Drive - Scan.co.uk: LiteOn IHOS104-37 4xBlu-Ray, 8x DVD Reader OEM inc Software
Power Supply - Scan.co.uk: 700W Storm LPK19-35 ,120mm Silent Fan, 24pin +4 pin +12V PSU ATX 2.2
Case - Not sure yet as I want to get a CoolerMaster Wave

I think I could save myself some money and use my current hard drive and memory. I may have made some incompatible choices, Im not very knowledgeable on computer components such as the major different in ddr2/3 ram and duo/quad cores etc. Thank you for anyones time Any suggestions on a build welcome.
