Newegg.com will sometimes list CPU steppings, but you pay a premium for the stepping you want as opposed to just one out of the tray.
If you're looking fora particular stepping, I'd recommend computer sale shows or brick & mortar stores, where you can look through their CPU's before you buy.

To be able to buy a specific stepping, you'll need to go to stores that sell them or to computer shows like sickboy said.
I don;t know of any online vendors that will pick and choose a specific stepping for you.Athlon II Phenom Deneb II X4 B45 @ 3.906ghz 252X15.5

I go to computer shows. They have all the processors sitting in glass cases or easy viewing.

You may be best paying your local computer vendor a visit, you may pay slightly more for the CPU than online, but they will usually let you choose the CPU you want from what they have. I have had only good experience doing this in the past.Herb: 2 x Intel PIII-S 1.4 GHz - GIGABYTE GA-6VTXDR - 1024MB PC133 - 2 x Tt Volcano 7+ - PCI nVIDIA GeForce fx5500 128MB - 60GB Samsung 7200RPM - 200GB Seagate Barracuda - 500W PSU - Debian GNU/Linux
