In 2 years, you won't be able to upgrade the CPU/Mobo only. You'll need new ram too. At this point, ya might as well go with an i7 rig. It's a quad and if you overclock a $300 i7/920, it might even beat the performance of a Q6600 at 3.6 (but not by much). At least then you'll stand a chance of upgradeability in the next couple of years.
