  1. The e7500 is faster. And the q8200 doesn't support virtualization, if you need it.
  2. I would choose the 1333fsb bus over the 1066 fsb even though the Q8200 is one of the worst quads out there.
  3. Best answer
    Right now, the 7500 is the better gaming CPU, maybe in the future, the Q8200 will be the better one as games will tend to start utilizing more cores.
  4. It depends on the game, a lot of newer games are showing good performance gains on quad core over dual, while basically any older game will run better on the faster clocked dual. Personally I would go with the quad.
