e8500 vs q9550

Recommended Posts

I am building a new system and am trying to decide between two CPU's. The E8500 dual core or the Q9550 quad core. I plan to run a dual monitor setup and primarily FS9 with future plans of FSX. Will the quad work better for running FS and FSC or will the dual keep up with both programs just fine. Looking for maximum performance possible and didnt know if the added cost of the quad would have a noticable benefit.

Thanks for your input.
