Some recommend that I could also overclock, but I'm not brave enough to do this. I read few articles. Some warn that I may get blue screen if the settings are incorrect.
I am a retired Ford tech. Next to Fords, any computer is a piece of cake. (The cake, its not a lie)

I guess I can try 3.3GHz. When you say little voltage bump, how much increase are we talking about?
That's part of overclocking. I have yet to run across a 6750 that wouldn't go to at least 3.3ghz with little or no voltage bump. That makes a difference. As long as you don't get crazy with voltage, the stock cooler is adequate.
I really wouldn't put more cash into a Socket 775 at this point. The CPUs are legacy products and Intel is still overpricing them. DDR2 memory cannot be carried over into future builds. You will be throwing cash at what is essentially a dead end. Figure in also you will have to get a 64bit OS to deal with 4gigs of memory.
Save the cash and build either a new Quad Phenom AMD or Intel 1156.
If I were itching to burn cash in the short term to improve performance, I might consider an SSD to put my working files on to help disk access issues when working on big files.
