Helloi5 2500K without a doubt, it is streets ahead of the Q6600.The 260 to 560ti will yield much less performance increase for your money.

I would go for a mobo/cpu upgrade any day.

Is your RAM DDR3? if it's not you'll need RAM too if you change CPU + mobo, but it's so cheap now that it shouldn't be much of a problem

Go for a full sized mid range one. I don't think you will be needing the features of a RoG and its a waste of money especially if you are on a budget.
