Go for the E6750. It should be cheaper, than the E6600, and it's better. As for the RAM, you need DDR2 memory. I would suggest brands like G. Skill, Crucial Ballistix, Patriot Extreme Performance, and GeIL.

For the power supply, I would suggest brands like Corsair, PC Power & Cooling, FSP (Fortron Source), or XClio.

Good choice on the motherboard.

4GB is not a must. 2GB is more than enough.

CAD stands for Computer Aided Design, and it's a program used to make 3D objects. These programs are mega memory hogs.

Q6600 is better for the future, if you can fit into the budget.
