Go for the quad, video/image editing software will benefit from the extra cores. Today's games benefit from extra Mhz since they can't fully utilize more than 2 cores but for your purposes and general multitasking a quad core will be great. :)

Funny I have 3 desktops and one is the 6600 Quad and then I just built the E 8400 and frankly I think the 8400 is more responsive if I had to choose.
