Newegg recently became out of stok of the ada3000axbox cpu, and now it is not even listed w/ eta for arrival of new chip. There are few other vendors with this chip in stock, and are more expensive and less well known. With final costs, it looks like a 3200+ newcastle will only cost $30 more from a very trusted reseller. I was wondering what you would do in this situation?

Forking out the extra 30 bucks would be worth it, as you get a 12x multiplier to work with, and the trusted service of newegg.

I cant wait till they get the EPoX mobo in stock so I can get my 2800+... But I havent a choice but to wait...

Check out MWAVE. Yesterday, I ordered the 8KDA3J as a combo with a 2800+ Retail and Far Cry for $281.25 shipped. I hope I get a Newcastle.

I am almost positive that all 2800's are newcastles.

I ordered from newegg about a month ago and got a bum 2800+. Ive been able to take it to 1.95ghz(from 1.8). So it doesnt like to overclock much.....on the bright side, it undevolts .1v from stock, so less heat=good.
