OK i just bought the Q6600 installed the processor + thermal compound and now running it I'll update more after checking it... the temperatures are bit higher than my E5200 on idle.

A quad is (almost) always an improvement.

EVGA or Inno3D GeForce GTX 550 Ti
I'd buy this one myself, if my current budget would allow,
but I need to make some more important purchases first.

If they are both reference cards, go for the cheaper one.

Evga's warranty and step-up program advantage doesn't apply to outside the US (and Canada?)
