Someone was building a computer for me.
I asked for an AMD 2800+ 2.8ghz. i was told that I got a 2.8ghz but windows xp tells me it is only '2.08' . Have I been done or what.?

Nope you haven't been done, that is the correct clock speed for an amd 2800. They are the speed equivalent to an intel 2.8ghz processor.

Amd name their chips so that their performance is rated equally to an intel chip, a lower clock speed doesn't mean a slower cpu.
