    When talking that much money, I would say yea it is worth it..

    That is : 6.03795 GBP

    Definately worth £6 of anyones money, and I think the 2200 is better OC'er

    2100+ = 1733mhz
    2200+ = 1800mhz
    difference = 66mhz (3.846%)

    not totally worth it. but if you're going to overlclock, it would be worth finding out what cores the 2100+ and 2200+ will be.

    Yep, make sure you don't get a stupid crap palomino like I did.

    Its a 2000+ (1667 stock) and its not stable at anything higher than 1812

    I think they are both TbredB. So I will get the 22 then.

    Thanks all.

    Just ask the shop that you are buying it from

    Same here. See specs below. I can't get mine over an FSB of 141 :eek: TbredB was released a week after I bought my proc I believe (of course at that time I'd never heard of a Palomino either :D )
