The E6600 designation was used for two different CPU's, a Pentium series in 2010 and an early Core 2 series in 2006. From the speed it appears to be the Pentium:

An inexpensive alternative to the later Core 2 series but with less cach. Though it should be nicely overclockable, it is not an i-3 in it's architecture, does not fit the same motherboard, and should have been less expensive than the i-3.
If you just purchased a computer or are just building a computer you should have gotten the SECOND GENERATION i-3 with a board that uses the socket 1155, unless you are really doing a budget system and got a really good deal on it.
It is quite normal for a CPU to jump up to 90-100% when you are starting a program or running a game or an intense program. You DO want the processor fully involved in what you want it to do at the time so as long as it slows back down when you shut down things, all is normal.
If you were misled into purchasing the wrong thing, try returning it, but you will probably need to switch the CPU, Board, and RAM. If you are gaming or want to use graphics intensive programs, you can improve performance bu adding a distinct graphics card if you are using the onboard graphics.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Did u purchase the whole system or only CPU?
Pentium 6 doesn't exist, looks like the guy you bought components or computer from doesn't have any knowledge or he lied because u know little about PC. Next time don't purchase things from him.

If u paid for core i3 then core i3 system u should demand. Both first and second generation of core i3 are better than any pentium dual core or core 2 duo chips.

According to this chart pentium dual core E6600 rank at 351(lower is better).
First generation i3 540 rank at 263
Second generation i3 2100 rank at 162

If u don't mind u will have no problem running GNS3.

Look at this:
http://forum.gns3.net/topic3485.html
on a search from this site:
http://www.gns3.net/adsense/cse?cx=...
And check out some of the other related questions asked. It sounds like you can use it, but you will be very limited in what you could do with it, Even the i3 would be less than they appear to be recommending, so speed (time) would be your main problem.
