And why would you pay $190 for something that is almost 3 years old and was originally $230? (plus, they say factory refurbished?)

Yes, they can oc good, but you can get the 4xxx haswell chips to perform just as good or better.

All depends on your board and setup.

If you have an existing 1155 setup , then it might make sense (though still not at that price).

That being said it would make more sense if you want to ditch the old platform for Haswell.

Seems legit, but I wouldn't pay that price for used (reconditioned) 2500k. Keep an eye out for a used 2500k or 3570k on here in the BST, or kijiji, etc. should be able to get one $150-170 without much issue.

It makes no sense to jump on something 2 Generations behind when the newest stuff can be had at good costs.
