well considering you can't use the motherboard and ram in a new build anyways, and the PSU is worthy of a garbage can, you won't be needing or transferring any of your current components anyhow. I'd wait, the q6600 can hold you off for a few months. (intel only releases "extreme" and high end components first usually...) Sandy Bridge is not going to be any worse then current chips. It just doesn't make sense to me to buy a dying socket. however you can in the meantime, upgrade your video card, which you can easily transfer to your new build when you do complete it. I don't know what game's you'll be playing, but upgrading the video card will have the greatest effect on reducing the bottleneck(s) of your games.
