Is your Q6600 O.C.'d? or at Stock clocks?

If your Q6600 is at stock clock it will bottleneck either a GTX560 or 6950.Your going to have to O.C. to lessen the bottleneck or go with a less powerful card.

Your PSU should be suffcient for a single GTX560 or 6950.

You can still get a GTX560ti or a 6950 but just know that it's performance will be held back by your CPU.Of course you can always O.C. if you want to.
