Default Barton

I am getting a new barebones system here in a few months and i was wondering what the barton means on the AMD XP processors and if its worth the extra money?

i think barton is the newer cpu cores from amd. they are only available on the higher end of the XP chips. xp2500 bartons are the best deals right now at $90 for retail with heatsink/ fan.

here's more comments, flip to the second page:

and here's some experiences with the xp2500:

Barton is essentially a T-Bred B revamped with 512 KB of level 2 cache, in the long run.

The XP 2500+ is a popular and good overclocker if you're interested in one.

I was looking at the 2800+, im not much of an overclocker, hopping that would make up for it.

Yep the barton is defiantely better than the t-bred core, you will find the price exaggeratted slightly, but sill.....

also, a 2800 is a good midway until the 64 really gets up some speed then u wont have lost too mcuh cash.
