  1. I'm hopeing to get some upgrades for my birthday for my com, the 2 im after mainly is a new cpu an mobo, an im going after a 64bit setup. I was comparing prices an realised that socket 754 (cpu's and mobo's) is a hell of a lot cheaper than 939. Is there a great deal of diference bewtween the 2?

    The bigger number is always going to be better. If you need reasons:

    1. 939 has dual channel memory support, 754 is only single channel.
    2. 754 doesn't support PCIe, 939 does.
    3. This compares most all AMD's processors. You can see that the 939 is superior (unless you are short on cash)
