Default Clanmate selling Core2 Duo E8600

The leader of the PC gaming clan I'm in is selling his Core2 Duo E8600 CPU. Here's his original post in the TKC forums.

Next week when my new CPU arrives I will be removing my E8600 and will be looking to sell it. I will sell it for $150 and I will cover the cost of shipping. Here is a link to newegg so you can read about it:

As you can see it is a $290 CPU. I have run it for about a year now and it has had no issues whatsoever. When dueled up with a 460 SE I run BC2 at max settings, however if you are already set with your gaming PC, it would make an excellent CPU for another system.

I have the box, and the factory fan that came with it has never been used. I will cover the cost of standard shipping all you have to do is make a donation to TKC in the amount of $150. Please post here if you are interested.
I'm giving him a link to this thread, he'll probably either register under the name -o]T3[o or nbtc971 when he replies.

Here's the original forum post:

Intel Core i5-2500k @ 3.3GHz
ASUS Sabertooth P67
Corsair XMS 1600 8GB (2 x 4GB)
XFX Radeon HD 6970
Corsair CMPSU-850TX 850W
Corsair H80 High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler
Windows 7 Professional (x64)

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.

I'm lowering the price to $100, but that's it since I'm covering the cost of shipping.
