Personally, I would just save even more money and just go a full out current rig. There's no point buying a 775 DDR3 board since I don't think it will give you any performance gain for the price you pay. If you have the right RAM, you can probably pick up another 4GB from NCIX for ~$50 on sales. That way you can still keep the Q6600 around for a bit longer and then turn it into headless VM later. Can't say about the performance myself since I haven't done the same with my Q6600 but I do have 8GB of RAM lined up.
