Default CPU upgrade advice needed

Hi guys. This has probably been asked before but I need to ask it again.

I am planning to upgrade my cpu in July.

My choices are the e8400 or q6600. Price range is about the same give or take R100.

I don't think the e8500 is worth the extra R800 for 0.16ghz

Also the mobo doesn't support the newer quads so that's a no go.

Which one would be the better option. Bare in mind this pc is mostly used for rpg gaming with the odd bit of overclocking. Some rts and fps gaming but mostly rpgs.
