I've been looking around at better parts etc, and this is what I came up with:

 
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-G41MT-S2PT Micro ATX LGA775 Motherboard  ($71.98 @ Newegg) 
Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB Superclocked Video Card  ($99.99 @ Newegg) 
Case: NZXT S340 (White) ATX Mid Tower Case  ($59.99 @ Micro Center) 
Total: $360.31
Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available

This will use my Q6600 and HDD from my current PC.
What I wish to know:
-Will I be able to get my Q6600 to at least 3.0GHz
-Are there going to be problems with my RAM?
 
I'll be using this for gaming at 1280x1024, rip.

I'm only pondering about the RAM because I've that alot of Gigabyte LGA775 boards have huge compatibility issues.

Gigabyte boards are the only ones I can find that come new, I'd rather not get a used motherboard that probably doesn't even have an I/O plate.

Looks like the board does take DDR3 so you should be fine. If you really want to check you should look up compatability on Gigabyte's website.

The ram should be fine, honestly I wouldn't worry about an IO shield, it really doesn't matter. BUT, I honestly wouldn't bother buying a new board; just use whatever you have now and put the money you saved towards an R9 380/x. The G1 series PSUs also aren't amazing...they're decent, but their are better alternatives at it's price point. 

 

(The stock Hyper 212 thermal paste is also sufficient)

Don't Get GTX 750TI, Get A Radeon HD 7770, 7870, or 7970.

 

If You Want To Use Ebay:

HD 7770: http://www.ebay.com/itm/PowerColor-1GB-Radeon-HD-7770-GDDR5-PCIe-/272025914444?hash=item3f56020c4c:g:rxkAAOSw9mFWK59j

HD 7870: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Asus-Direct-CU-II-Edition-Radeon-HD-7870-2-GB-GDDR5-/141804563460?hash=item210435ec04:g:BGIAAOSwA4dWGNyR

HD 7950: ​http://www.ebay.com/itm/XFX-Double-D-Radeon-HD-7950-FX-795A-TDFC-3GB-384-Bit-GDDR5-PCI-Express-3-0-x16-/161868102130?hash=item25b01739f2:g:MQsAAOSwwbdWKzMS

 

HD 7770: 120 FPS TF2, other source games, crisis 3: 20, battlefield 4: 40.

HD 7870: 120 FPS TF2, other source games, crisis 3: 40, battlefield 4: 60+

HD 7950: 128 FPS TF2, other source games, crisis 3: 60+, battlefield 4: 60+

 

GTX 750Ti is around as powerful as the Radeon HD 7770.

I chose the GTX 750Ti because my current PC isn't lacking in anything but GPU power, it'd give me the ability to use it as soon as I get it

and allow me to run at reasonable FPS instead of being unable to get more than 30FPS in games such as Far Cry 3.

My current Dell PSU doesn't have a visible GPU power connector anywhere I look.

It'd easily hold me off in my current PC till' I get the parts I need to switch everything over.

For the thermal paste, I completely forgot that the cooler came with any at all.

My board is currently a Dell board and it doesn't have overclocking support, I need a new one in order to overclock my CPU.

I figured that, but it's not worth it; plus a g41 board really isn't what you want to be overclocking on.
