No need to upgrade the RAM. 4GB is more than enough for gaming.

What is the resolution of your monitor?

And if you're going to be upgrading the graphics card, you should also upgrade the power supply as well.

Don't you already have a thread just like this that is up?

But if you want people to actually give a half decent response, you should describe your situation better. What games you play, what games you plan on playing, your desire for graphics settings, etc.

Your board supports 45nm quads, so honestly, that'd be your only real upgrade worth anything.

The question that needs to be asked, is why do you want to upgrade a Q6600? If it's just for the sake of upgrading -- fine, but to me it seems like a complete waste of time and money to upgrade a processor that high end. Do you realize how powerful this CPU still is? Just because its "old" now doesn't mean its still not a powerhouse that is more powerful than 95% of the CPUs in the market.

I say wait till the new video cards come out. Then get one of those + a new PSU. Rest of your system is good.

O.o well, i dont think youll be needing $200 on a psu, something like a corsair 750w should be good for anything you get now and future upgrades, which run at around $120. but for a gpu, if you dont need an immediate upgrade now, you could wait for the next gen cards to come out. if not, then maybe look into a 4890 or gtx 285.
