    E8400 vs Q6600


      Need some help determining which processor is better for gaming.

      Intel® Core™2 Quad Processor Q6600 (8M Cache, 2.40 GHz, 1066 MHz FSB)
      Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor E8400 (6M Cache, 3.00 GHz, 1333 MHz FSB)

      My machine currently has the E8400 but I have a Q6600 laying around.

      I think the speed of the E8400 makes it better but I'm not very fimilar how Core 2 Duo's stack up vs Quad Core.
