OK a few Games. But what about the 100's of games that are already in place that don't use 4 quads. Don't get me wrong I know the future is 4 Quads but thats way down the road. I still think the E8400 is a better choice for what he wants and will be fine for the next year or so if money is tight for him. Look at the benchmarks and comparisons on the net the Q6600 loses.
