He's asking about 2x more than what that processor is worth. Newegg et al are not good gauges for pricing 3-year-old hardware. For the same price, you can get a current-gen model that'd be much faster clock-for-clock:
Or you could spend $40 more for a quad-core model that would be more than twice as powerful.

I am okay with paying maybe $80 to $120 for it but not $150. Thanks for the heads up on it but I will keep looking for a replacement CPU for my Core 2 board.
