plz respond ASAP plz tell me the best one they make looking at 2.5 GHz large cache (for socket A that is ) I have an AMD athlon 64 2800+
Look at what reynod posted. There is a chance you already have the best in your machine. If you have a t-bred 2800, thats the top for the t-breds. If your motherboard doesn't support the Barton core CPUs, your already at the top of what you can do.
If your buying new parts this summer anyways (this is like 4-5 months from now?), you might as well wait it out. Why spend $50 on a new barton core CPU if it won't carry over to the new system? Might as well wait, its only a few months.
