    Is there a big enough difference between processing power of a 3.2 quad vs. 2.8 quad? $350+ difference on price on refurbished....

    Thanks in Advance

    2.8GHz: 8800
    3.2GHz: 10000

    Up to you whether this merits the money. Personally I would get the 2.8GHz and for 600.00 extra buy a W3680 and plop it in for the 6-core 3.33GHz goodness. If you are not comfy doing that then get the 3.2 as you will be stuck with it.

    I am running a 2.8Ghz system right now and my feelings are you will see a bigger difference with a fast hard drive and enough memory so disk swapping does not happen.
