Question Building Computer. Need help/recommendations

Hello.
I am building a computer that will be used primarily for Adobe CS2 programs and gaming.
I just need some reasurance from some more knowledgable individuals than myself.
PLEASE tell me if these parts will be compatible. If you have some advice, PLEASE share it with me.

MoBo: Either an Asus P5LD2 R2.0 (Intel 945P) or ECS Nforce 570 Slit-A (V5.1)

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6400

Graphics: XFX GeForce 7600GT

Memory: Either Pqi Turbo DDR2 533 (PC2-4200) or Mushkin DDR2 667 (PC2-5300)

HD: Seagate Barracuda 320GB with 16mb cache (SATA 3.0gb/s)

Case: Raidmax Smilodon ATX midtower with 500 watt PS

---Any advice is good advice. Tell me what you think. Finally, concerning the memory, what would be ideal if I eventually plan on getting 2gb of RAM.....4 sticks of 512 or 2 sticks of 1gb?---

---If you have some hardware in mind that may work better, PLEASE tell me! My spending cap is $900.

well In my personal opnion I htink it would be better for you if you just got single 1gb sticks so for later on when you want 4gb you dont have to go back and rebuy ram..
