E8400 or Q6600

\015 Hello.I've decided to buy new cpu. But i can't choose, which is better E8400 or Q6600.. If it's important: motherboard Abit IP35P, RAM 4GB DDR2 1066MHz, Hard drive Seagate Barracuda ES 7200.10, video XFX GTX260. At the moment im using E8200. Will be any difference between E8200 and Q6600 or E8400. Thanks\015

Answers :

I would go with the q6600 because it is the quad. BUT make sure it is compatable with the abit Ip35p here is a link to there compatablity chart.

Personally i have the q6600 which is a quad core processor, all the others you listed were dual core, personally i use alot of programs all at once which is good if you have a quad core, but just for general music, data, and streaming, the e8400 is probably better for you, its a 3ghz processor.
