Then go with the E8400, stock 3ghz.

If you aren't going to OC, get the E8400. It has a higher stock speed and will be good for gaming. If you are going to OC, get the Q6600 or Q6700. The Q6700 has a tendancy to OC a bit better, but either one is a good choice.
I choose the Q6600 as, although I do game, I do a lot of other stuff (usually while gaming), so I wanted a CPU that was better for all around use.

No OC, stock speed counts. Either E8400 or E6850 is fine but go for E8400 in this case.

Take the E8400 for Gaming and Q6700 for future proofing.

45nm.....far too finicky & fragile for my liking ....

i dont want to have to worry about a hot day & my cpu going 1c above what it likes & frying ...i prefer 65nm they take a serious beating & keep goin on like Ariston..lol


but that's just me

Duals do the best in gaming and as for DVD's and the like a 8400 would be only a few seconds slower than a quad. Quads are not worth the extra money as not many applications can fully unlock their potential. By the time software is released that can keep up with a quad, the "future proof" argument holds no water as a far better quad or other multi-core cpu will be available by then; imho.
