Intel today lifted the performance non-disclosure agreement, or NDA, for the first product of its
Core 2 Duo E6x50-sequence lineup
—the Core 2 Duo E6750. Despite being the first refreshed Conroe-based processor since the
, the Core 2 Duo E6750 clocks in below the dual-core flagship Core 2 Extreme X6800. Intel clocks the Core 2 Duo E6750 at 2.66 GHz, identical to the E6700.
New to the Core 2 Duo E6750 however, is a faster 1333 MHz front-side bus to match the new

You might be able to get away with buying a new AGP graphics card (if you're still running AGP). The x1950Pro AGP does pretty well.
Most games right now aren't CPU bound (unless your CPU is 5 years old), you could probably get away with upgrading your CPU to a Pentium D or whatnot (or the AMD equivalent). Games will not be requiring DirectX 10 until 2011/2012.
Right now, DX10 only promises performance gains [faster frame rates] (which haven't materialized yet) and the potential for improved graphics quality down the road.
"Intel is investing heavily (think gazillions of dollars and bazillions of engineering man hours) in resources to create an Intel host controllers spec in order to speed time to market of the USB 3.0 technology." -- Intel blogger Nick Knupffer
