Default What's with the Athlon 64 2800+

Why does no one have a 64 2800+? I've seen a lot of the 3200+ and 3000+ in people's signatures, but why no 2800+'s? Is it not worth the money?

I think it simply because the prices are so close within eachother. You say, well, if i get less of this and this i can get a 3000, and finally your skipping tonight's dinner so you can save enough for a 3400. Ok so its not that bad, but I'm considering a 3500 now to have the 939 pin instead of the 3200 or 3400 i was originally looking at. I think i can still put together a nice system for under $1200 w/ a 3500 processor.

No one uses the 2800+ because it is the budget version of the 64s and in my opinion it stinks.

The reason I say it stinks is because you get much more from the 3000+, and it is only about $60 more.
