That looks pretty decent, but I'd buy a used dual core or a used quad core chip. I just saw a Q6600 B3 go for $130.00 shipped, and several E6600's have been selling for ~$120.00 shipped.

Its a budget chip with 2M shared L2 and 800FSB. What do you want to know about it, how it clocks?

Depends on where you are. Check out the local buy&sell forums in your area. Many "mom&pop" computer stores have a forum function on their website, and kijiji is always a good place to find local deals.

I just picked up a MSI 650i board with an E6400 chip for $100, and I sold an E6600 chip for $100 a couple of months back so the local deals are most definately around, you just need to look for them and be the first to jump on the deals. :)
