I'd say go for it. The q6600 is getting pretty dated and the performance of the new sandybridge cpus are amazing. I've seen people get the i5-2500k up to 4.8 GHz oc on air. They put the first gen i7s to shame. Its a great time to upgrade.

You'll have to wait a few more weeks until more motherboards become available.
