What exactly do you mean "gone wrong"?

If you have s money, just sell the q6600, 8800gtx, ram, and basically what ever else you dont really want to re-use, then buy a new computer. You should have enough for an i7 system, cuz that's what I did. You could probably get a x48 or 780i+ motherboard, but there's really no point dropping money into a dead socket, better to get what ever money you can now and make the move to a newer system.
