1. instead of the Q6600 and the E6750 get the new E8400 penryn, cheaper better performance and OC'ing beast
2.Do not get 3GB ram just get 2 GB cause 3Gb of RAM cannot run in dual channel which will lower your performance. Most people do not ever use up thier 2GB unless in some crazy RAM intensive games.

Yup the E8400's have been OC'ing to 4.0GHz easily, and 2gigs of RAM is plenty. I totally agree with kazakia. Plus the E8400 has 6mb cache. The ONLY problem I have heard is with guys putting too much voltage into them. The E8400 is the best bang for the buck.

Between Q6600 and E6750, pick Q6600 if you plan to keep the rig for awhile especially when you are working on imaging and video editing ect. Otherwise, E6750 will give you more higher potential OC. 2GB ram is fine. Make sure you have 64bit OS in order to take full advantage of 4GB ram. Any DDR2-800 from Crucial,GSkill or Corsair etc should be fine. That board is 650i board. Go for nVidia chipset board only when you do SLI. Otherwise, stick with P35/x38 boards as possible. Don't know about your budget, $90 Gigabyte P35-DS3L is a good board.

OK. Then Evga 680i A1 or 780i A1 is a good option for you. Since you won't upgrade 2-3 years, if you may wait a few weeks and get a 45nm Quad and Evga 780i if money isn't an issue. Otherwise, AN eVGA 680I and Q6600 shoud be fine.

Q6600...Thats a no brainer. Especially if you are going to keep this like you say for 2-3 years. By then there will be A LOT of apps using 4 cores so go with "more is better" mindedness.
