You can build a great little system out of that setup, especially if your board can OC well and if the q6600 is g0 edition. I'm running a 470 (OC'd 460 can hit similar performance) and my stock q6600 does well with most anything I throw at it. Once that 2.4ghz is OC'd to 3.4 or 3.6, based on experience with friends PC, I should be able to chew through most games.
I'd highly recommend the upgrade and would aim for OC ability. A good case with proper airflow and a proper CPU cooler to match will set you back ~$150 when you are ready for that upgrade which will return nice bang for the buck.
