no, some programs are multi core optimized. Like cad is one that is. so the q6600 is still your best bet.

DONT double post! Edit your previous post.
You can run two monitors off of one card. They have two outputs.

as for the ram, I am not sure. 250 seems like about right though

Newegg.com - mushkin 4GB(2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail

cheaper


Newegg.com - DFI LANPARTY DK X38-T2R LGA 775 Intel X38 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail

also this one has almost all of the same features, except it has a max of 1333mhz fsb, and only has 6 sata. pretty good board in my opinion, never had a problem with DFI, and this one is also a little cheaper

yes, the higher the DDR2-XXXX number, the faster, and also the lower the CAS latency, the faster the ram.
