It's also a bit cheaper than the quad, which allowed me to switch up to a 9800GTX from a 9600GSO and still keep the system cost down to around $675 USD. The main advantage of the E8400 comes from the fact that your computer doesn't sound like a jet engine when under a large load or when watching HQ movies.
I'd go with the E8400 as well. Very solid processor.

I'd go with an ATI card personally, though rocking the 1gb 4870 myself :3
