Pretty simple question:

For almost an identical price would I be better off choosing the phenom II x4 940 (3.0ghz) or the intel e8500 (3.16ghz). I'm using the computer mostly for gaming.

stick with the e8500. there are no games on the market that can fully use the quad core. The gaming companies are wotrking on converting games to play on consols not, and not worrying about optimising them for quads.

Go with the E8500. Install it on P5Q series Asus Mobo, add a quality Graphics card and you are ready to play games.
