Why an E6600? That is a pretty slow processor.
There also isn't an upgrade path going with the E6600.

How about a lower end LGA 1155 Socket processor?

if u have already brought ur cpu and just looking for gpu gtx 560ti will be a safe bet but what about ur psu ..tell which psu u are using ,its the most important one before choosing ur gpu..core2duo is still a capable gaming processor u can stay with that..if ur res is 1600x900p go for gtx 560 if ur res is 1080p go for gtx 560ti..
