754 or 939

Assuming you are referring to the AMD A64 processor :?: :roll:

754 pin is being targeted at low end AMD processors for Office and general Internet applications.
With 939 pin being the longer term socket type for AMD processors aimed at the high end faster processes for gaming and media applications.

Both are good processors but the socket 939 will be more futureproof. If you go for a 939 I would get one with a winchester core.

I have a 754 and mine is a gaming machine, all the latest games, highest details and resoloutions... graphics cards and memory are more important for gaming than the processor!

Go for the 939, it is more likely that you will be able to upgrade to another chip in the future without replacing the board. If you buy into the 754 range now, you are essentially buying what will be the top end of the range, if you want to upgrade later you're forced into getting a new MB.

yeah lol, good point, at the moment, the highest I can go now is up to an amd 4000, am on a 3400 now, so not much upgrade, the 939 would be better regarding upgrading.
