I finally made the choice between dual and quad core.......hope it was the right one. I'll report if it is a GO stepping, and how it runs in an Abit IP35-e w/ Crucial 1066.

If you really want a G0 you can tell ClubIT to convert your order into
a G0 specific 'preorder' though getting the CPU could take another several
days depending on what happens with their ordering process.

Also tankguys.biz seems to be reputable and well respected in the community,
and they have a G0 specific preorder for $299 + shipping which should be arriving
for tham around 10 aug.

Also for pure price, check mwave.com and outpost.com, they're a few bucks
cheaper than Clubit / tankguys but your chances of getting a G0 may be
very low and uncertain. I would hesitate to call outpost (outhouse) / Frys.com
'reputable' in the sense that they rank near #1 in customer disservice when it
comes to knowledgable / helpful pre-sales info and support, though I think they're
reputable in the sense of being trustworthy to buy from and have confidence
you can get whatever warranty and RMA options are actually described and offered
for your particular product, and that they'll usually ship very promptly for in
stock items or very promptly not at all if they get out of stock and decide
to cancel the standing hordes of backorders on some massively popular item.

bamacre ordered 6 of these at ClubIT, and 5 were GO's. I'm hoping the older stepping is mostly gone by now...

Tankguys.biz maybe.. 299 + shipping... I don't know where they are
but it's something to check.

www.ncixus.com SOMETIMES has G0s... check their page and see if they
are guaranteeing g0 on any particular day.. yesterday they guaranteed b3,
I assume so they'd run out of B3 and save the G0s for the people that
particularly wanted them.

Ya, I called in. The guy said he'd make sure I got a GO.
It should ship Monday. My order status is updated to 'completed', but no tracking info.
ClubIT doesn't send many email updates as to order status......like Newegg.

are tankguys legit? site does not resolve anything using www, you can only get there without the www, and then none of the pics load because of that.

Its tough being a penny pinching deal meister. I could wait a bit and let the b3's out of the supply channel, but i have a feeling that demand will drive up the cost of these chips. kinda like how 8800gts cards have gone up.

Yes, they are legit.
