I would grab the Q8300 and overclock it to 3.0ghz

A good majority of games are coded for quad core, especially the newer ones and the soon to be released titles, so buying a dual core isn't your best bet.

A cpu either works or it doesn't, no real way to refurbish it. It's probably just a newish open box item.

i think i might buy that one the Q9500 for 150$ seems like a good deal, but one last question it has 6MB of cache and some of the others have 4MB does this make a big difference?
