Ok, the Q6600 would probably fit your needs, and 4 gigs of RAM would let you upgrade for the future.

If you want more speed then overclock...... Upgrading to a Q9650 won't change much, for faster speed you could disable some of vista's extra features which aren't utilised giving you a more streamlined OS

q9650 will only run a bit cooler... but if you want, go for it and then OC it like a mad man... of course you could just get a Sunbeam Core Contact Freezer (called Tuniq Core Contact Freezer in some countries) and OC the q6600 just as well

4 gigs of ram will give you a noticeable increase in video transcoding speed and mathematically intensive operations (eg compression and encryption among others), as well as making multitasking far smoother

"intel pent extreme" ???? Are you talkin about the old 2MiB Prescotts???
