    It might be worth it, if you can get the q6600 for a good price. I think they are around $40 on ebay. The video card is a safe bet either way because you can always move that to a new system when you can afford a new system.

    You don't need to upgrade your PSU. Yours has either 32 or 34A on the 12v rails which is plenty.
