Excellent. A lot of times newer users tend to post here repeatedly asking which CPU is better out of a certain group, and someone here just looks them up there and posts the result here. It's a lot simpler to just give instructions on how to do it yourself...
By the way, I had a few G73s in my ebay watch history. The auctions all ended somewhere between $400 and $600. Just to give you something of an idea of what to expect. It seems like the ending prices aren't very steady, even between identical models. Just be patient and you'll get a deal.
EDIT: Yeah, athlon 64 is way old now. These i7s will all be significantly faster.
