Welcome to the forums!

Like Greg said, the X3350 is a GREAT choice, if you can find it in stock. It's identical to the Q9450, but in most cases, costs a little bit less.

The E5420 shouldn't be considered... it's a processor that's designed for dual-processor servers and is based on LGA771 rather than LGA775, so you would be unable to use it.
