Why dont you write up a EBay CPU Guide... EBay has lots of guides to help people see the truth. Theres a great one on EBay about fake Pro Duo cards and shows pics to help people know what is a fake and whats not.

Go on write a guide and put it to the EBay Guides page.

The thing about the difference between a 'processor', and a 'core' is that a core is inside a processor. The fact that you have 2 x 2Ghz cores inside 1 physical processor makes the original 4Ghz statement false in the fact that when you list processor speed within your ebay auction, it asks for processor speed, not core(s) speed.

It's trick wording, but if you state that whatever computer has 4Ghz core preformance would technically be a better term. Not necessarily correct way of thinking about it, but for the picky wording people *cough*lawyers*cough* this is a solution...

But for the part of the difference between 2 physical processors over 2 cores, doesn't matter, for bow anyways... Programming is faaaaaaaaaaaaaar away from actually using the multi core cpus, as multi threaded program execution. So the whole Ghz preformance thing is theoretical at best...

I do agree that saying you have a 4Ghz cpu, but really it's a 2 x 2Ghz core cpu...

The general population doesn't understand the difference, so it's easy to get colorful with the words, and push that explanation into the grey area.

But on the flip side, If you have a single core cpu running at 2Ghz, and then you have a dual core cpu running at the same 2Ghz, your not getting 4Ghz of preformance out of it. If you ran good code, that was designed for multi threading, you might get close, but it will never be perfect. It's programming fundamentals...

2 x 2Ghz != 4Ghz
good enough

Yay, so that means I have a 6.4Ghz CPU! ..........not!

I bought my motherboard from Ebay. There was a guy on there who I think was the last person on earth that had the Ultra-D. I paid a premium, but it was worth it at the time.

This is not true. Ebay is an auction market place and it plays by completely different rules than traditional retail market places. I find that if i'm careful, I can get extremely good deals on eBay. I am selective with the "powersellers" because they are the people that read books on how to scam every cent out of buyers on Ebay. There are however, honest individuals who are just looking to get rid of their unneeded stuff. Reading the listing thorougly and contacting the seller about your concerns helps avoid mistakes.

I have stayed away in recent weeks because I don't like what they did with the feedback. Only time will tell whether I go back to sell on eBay but I know those $800 QX9650's have been calling my name (to bad the lint in my wallet is clogging my ears).
