  1. Good luck finding one, the least they cost now days that isn't 125 or 140w is around $50. A 9350E is a 2ghz 65w quad, the E models are also very close clock per clock performance to a Phenom 2. As for overclocking them they require a good solid board that can handle the high base clock. I got a 8250e tri core in my am2+ build and I got up to 2.7ghz out of it rock solid. The other way is to get a 9950 BE but look for the 125w model, stock clocked at 2.6ghz. I like the E models because they are low voltage models and run very cool. The highest E model quad is a 9450E and the second best is a 9350E.
  2. Just go on ebay, there are plenty of Athlon 64 X2s under $30.

    I wouldn't get the one you posted because the heatspreader looks a little beat up and scratched.
