In case anyone was wondering, the newegg version of the 2800 is:

I would just go for the 2700 or 2600(333) or if you are very lucky a 2400 with the AIUGB stepping. The price premium for the 2800 is just to darn high.
well if he knows the stepping he is implying he bought the chip allready so post your results w/ it!

show some stock benchies and then oc the mofo like theres no tomorrow!
What's a little extra money when you are addicted to the art of overclocking ;)

Anyway, the 2700 I had was stable only to around 2360 or so on air (slk-800) and without trying anything higher yet, the 2800 is stable right out of the box at 2,470 on air at 1.9v. temp reporting on 8k9a2+ is 35.5 degrees. So not bad for a start. This thing should really fly with some better cooling.
Maybe its "a little extra money" when you are able to buy an XP2700+ and a little later an XP2800+ but not everyone is in the same boat as you financially!
