Which CPU E8400 or Q8400 ?

  Eargasm 11:34 22 Nov 2009

I'm looking to build a new PC and can't decide between the E8400 Dual or the Q8400 Quad core.
I'm not into Gaming and have no intention of Overclocking.
Both are similar price, i would appreciate your thoughts on which to go for. Thanks

with dual cpu not noticed much improvement over single core but quad core does seem to make overall speed improvements

Thanks for the replies, i went with the Q8400 in the end, my current system is a AMD Athlon 3200 ( 2GHz) so it should be a vast improvement on that.
