thinking of using cpu Q6600
good heatsink
best ddr2 ( can i run ddr3?)
overclockers board
case 2x300g raid0 (raid6?)velociptor
direct x11 vga

or do i go for a newer cpu like the i3 i5 i7
what would be the diffeffence in terms of perfomance
like game play reading programmes ect
would i see masses of difference ?

i have already got the cpu vga card mem software.
thinking if i could save a few quid or would i be waisting my time
effort

This post makes little sense at all. What exactly do you want to do? What exactly have you got in terms of hardware now? Whether you see a difference in upgrading depends entirely on what you have now.

But you're telling me nothing about the computer, all you're telling me is it's a Quad-Core Processor. Like saying my car has wheels, should I replace the car with a Land Rover?

What is an "overclockers" board? What board do you have now, what graphics card do you have now and what version of Windows do you have now? Please help us to help you.

The motherboard will determine if the
CPU
Memory
Video


Will be compatible together. Some motherboards will support the cpu but maybe not the I series CPU's so it is important we know what motherboard you are thinking about getting.
The video card which make and model do you have?
Memor may have to be replaced again depending on the motherboard and what it will accept.
HD and Cdrom drive usually are not a problem to interchange.
