PCR Primer Design Question

Hi all

I'm not that used in primer design, maybe someone can help me: For designing
a primer pair for a microsatellite locus I only got two possibilities left
(cloned DNA is pretty short):
1.  A primer pair without any GC 5' clamp
2.  A pair with ...GG endings each, but one ends with ...CATTTTTGG 5'

So what's worse, a poly-T close to the end, or primers without any
GC-clamps? Are there any good links for such questions?

Thank you for any hint.
