I found a chart at xbitlabs.com. It's not a linux comparative but it shows that both have more or less the same performance.
I think that q9300 will get better results with new updates of programs and at this moment both have the same price so I would get the q9300 :P

I second the vote for more threads.

There are also new C power states in the penryns to lower power in unused portions of the chips.

I have a T9500 in my laptop. Love it. low heat, but can rip a DVD in no time.

always go for more cores. you'll see the difference during compilations.
