With the upcoming price cuts, I'm contemplating getting a q6600 over the e6600, however, I'll be doing some moderate-hardcore gaming and overclocking...

Basically, I've heard an e6600 is better than a q6600 for gaming and OCing, so should I take the price cut and save some money, or get the q6600?

Well the e6600 is better for overclocking, and I think on par with the q6600 on gaming. Games are just now, hitting the multi-cores. I'm not sure on this decision. But I think I would go for the Q6600, because that is hard to pass up, at that price. The e6600 though, is still great, if you don't go for the q6600.

thanks, btw when are the q6300 ect coming out??? maybe ill get one of them, or maybe ill just get a p35 and a penryn...

I haven't heard much about it yet. But what I've read is that it could be sometime after the July 22 price cuts. I've also read about the Q6300/6400 being canceled though. The speeds of the Q6300/Q6400 are said to be 1.86GHz and 2.13GHz respectively.
