Sorry, that was a typo. I meant the E6600.

yes thats correct. I'd try to get 2gb, since 2gb is just awesome, but 1gb would also do fine if u can't afford 2gb.

Dont get the E6300, you will go nowhere with the 7x multiplier that it comes with. Minumum should be the E6400. The 8x multiplier is nice to have since your RAM won't be as stressed. To get 3Ghz, you will need to go 370x8 which is very easy to do on the Gigabyte DS3 or the ASUS P5B (deluxe).
