    I can't see paying $60 for a refurbished board that's not that great to start with. Now here's a nice budget board.

    You'll be able to run Quake 4 as long as your video card can run it.

    You need to make sure it can be used in a desktop motherboard. I don't think it can be, but do not take my word for it.

    Last time I checked the Mobile Athlon 64s were all socket 754, which means it's probably not worth getting one. However, some desktop boards will take a Mobile with no problems.
