Generally both cpus will perform the same, varying in different games slightly, if you can get the 9400f cheaper I'd go with that
 
The 9400, being the (semi) newer process (14 nm ++++++++++ now?), would likely have a 100 MHz higher base clock and/or turbo at the same power as the 8400, so no reason not to choose it, especially if $10-$15 less expensive!
