White Wolf do NOT get an X2 6000+. Just look at the wattage (125 watts) while the 5000+ Black Edition can attain the same clock speeds but with less heat transfer. Besides it has unlocked multiplies and its black edition so its made to overclock. Trust me bro you'll regret buying a X2 6000+.

I recommend switching the psu to a Corsair 550vx but other than that yes.

The Q6600 is faster than the E7200. However the E7200 is still faster than any AMD dual or tri core processor.
