  1. so a friend of mine still owns a socket 939 mobo. The processor he has now is a x2 3800+ which is 2GHZ. He wants to upgrade to the highest available socket 939 out there which is a x2 4800+ which is a 2.4 ghz. However that processor can no longer be found anywhere except for ebay which is going a ridiculous amount. Anyone know of a place that still sells the 4800+ but not break the wallet? thanks for any help anyone can give!

    This CPU upgrade will not improve performance that much... replacing the motherboard and CPU with a modern mulitcore CPU makes more sence
