  1. Both the Q6600 and 9800GTX are consuming pretty much the same, if not more power from the PSU then the parts you're thinking of getting*, so investing in a new one wouldn't make so much of a difference. If I go from a site like Newegg; the following would be a nice upgrade, within budget. Intel Core i7 2600 - $300 Asus P8P67 LE(v3) - $133 Kingston ValueRAM 2x4GB $43 Total: $476 Obviously a similar set can be made with an AMD Phenom II X6 processor, but from personal experience going from such CPU to the i7 2600, the Intel platform wins in performance. Heck, I hardly felt any difference when I originally upgraded from my Q6600 to the AMD Phenom II X6 (1100T). edit; if you settle for an i5 (eg 2500), which is still pretty good, or similarly from the AMD platform, you can squeeze in your beloved SSD with maybe just a margin over the $500 line; since the i5 is around $200. * eg; Q6600 has a TDP of 105, while the i7 2600 has one of 95W and has more clockdown/saving-features.
  2. Mine doesn't need sh*t like that :p nice and standard and it looks cool already.

Both have their right to exist. i7's might perform better, but Phenom II's are not that far behind and performs very well for its lower pricetag.
