/shrug ill be ordering one when i get back from vacation, so ofcourse i have a bias opinion, from what i hear the revised NewCastles are better than the claw hammers unless the clarhammer is a DTR for notebooks, but its got a good price tag so you cant go too wrong.

WELCOME TO THE FORUMS!!!

The 2800+ are still C0 stepping clawhammers, I suggest you stay away from the CPU.
If you want a guaranteed newcastle, get the 3200+ with 512kb of L2 from newegg.

ugh time to scrounge up more cash to get a 3200+ if the stepping on a 2800+ NC is C0
also, what about the 3000+? is it still clawhammer or is the stepping now newcastle :eek:

Just buy the retail, if you get a Clawhammer with 512k cache disbaled which will be easily identified by the CO revision, return the cpu because it isnt a newcastle.
