It's kind of a more efficient version of the processor. Right now it's B3 stepping, but the G0 allows for the the processor to run at a lower voltage. Thus, you can OC it more.

Gotta love/hate Walmart - They are the bossiest people for suppliers to deal with. I bet they told the publisher - You will provide us with X amount of books at x amount of money or we won't carry it. There's very little negotiation with those people.
