This is the CPU you want, it's an extra 4$ for the newest core, and it supports SSE3 and overclocks much better than whinchesters.
Also their's too much bull**** floating around in this thread. DFI started to get better known in their Nforce3 days, but their Nforce2 boards are also some of the best. Just happens that the Abit NF7 was better.
A 6600GT is a wise descision for your current computer, or even a new one.
To get some money back on this, it is worth it to buy a new computer, and sell your old one as to the average person it's still worth quite a bit of money.
For the motherboard their's really only one way to go, DFI. This motherboard I am linking to is a refurb, but usually the refurbs are more safe to use since their testing. However they come OEM.
Or if you want the non OEM, + it comes with cool stuff guartneed, you may want to email newegg about the other one
