Overclockd E8600 vs Overclocked Q6600

I plan to buy a processor and I do not know whether I should buy the E8600, which I plan to overclock to 4Ghz+, or the Q6600. I do not know how high Q6600 can go up to but I'm guessing around 3.5Ghz-3.7Ghz. I am not a gamer and I'll mostly use it for Photoshop, multimedia, and editing. I know that I should get the quad core, but I was wondering if higher clock rate will benefit me? Thanks.

Multitasking would be better on a quad core. even if the e8600 is overclocked to 4 ghz even, there won't be that much of a difference. Now say 6 ghz, yes then I would say go for the 8600, but it can't oc that high. That would be about close to 100% overclock.
