    performance about the same. 939 has more future compatibility.

    What Chips are u planning to run if I may ask?
    Sempron, Athlon 64, Athlon FX or Opteron
    Depending on the Chip U Want also has a impact
    on what socket u need

    No. Only Opteron 2xx and 8xx have multiprocessing support.
