I vote for the Q. Even though not too many games and applications use it now, it is hardier than the E8400 and, as time goes on, more and more things will be coded for quads. It is silly to buy anything PC related by what you need now. Things move so fast, that you will need it soon enough. Speed isn't everything and a quad is more "future proof" than any dual core. I would gladly trade 200-300mhz for 2 more cores. Also, they are a beast to fold with.
