One of the things I could advice you is to search for this kind of CPUs on second hand sites like ebay, priceminister, etc and buy them from sellers with good rep. The second thing would be to make sure the CPU you buy is on the same socket, the mobo has BIOS support and the TDP doesn't exceed (by a lot) the TDP of your current CPU.
