    939 is your choice if you're going to upgrade the CPU to a (significantly) faster one in the future.

    754 could be seen as the replacement for socket 462. It doesn't have dual channel memory support and there are no dual-core CPUs for it.

    It would be a wiser to go with a Socket-939 system at this point. It will give you better upgrade options as Socket-754 boards will no longer recieve faster Athlon64s (3700+ is the fastest) just Semprons, they're not dual-core compatible & the ones that happen to have PCI-e slots are very hard to find.
