Intel doesn't make socket 939 processors.


and what will you be using it for?

I have decided to upgrade my motherboard and get a AM2 socket, so, I plan on buying an AMD dual core, not sure which one yet. What's the best AMD for under $200? Also, I have never completely built a PC before, ive done almost everything except for processors, so, I was wondering how hard they are to install and if it requires doing anything in the bios...

PCs are very easy to assemble, just need an instruction manual and you're set. Actually you really don't even need that, just make sure each slot gets something and you should be set , for AM2 I'd just get http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103759
Seems like a decent buy, though I haven't had a chance to try out this processor before, AMD is a reliable company.

If you want the best out of your money ur gonna want:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103036
also buy a nice cooler as well, if you do you can Over clock this guy all the way to 3.0ghz equivalent to the 5600+.

If your just lazy or don't know how to oc then just get the 5200+

I second that decision if you're going the AM2 route and plan on overclocking. However, I don't really think there's a whole lot to gain going from 939 to AM2, aside from DDR2 RAM. I can't really tell a difference between my brother's AM2 rig (with an X2 4600 @ ~2.8GHz) and mine except in multi-threaded applications, but 939 has dual-cores as well.

I personally think you'll be fine getting an Opteron 165/170 (assuming you OC it) and sticking with the 939 rig, unless you plan on doing more upgrades to your RAM/CPU before AM2 is phased out. Just my 2 cents.

I think I've decided to leave... maybe I'll come back sometime.

I second his opinion about skt 939, if you want to stick with AMD brand CPUs, I'd hold off the upgrade and wait for Barcelona to come out, at which time you'll be able to pick from Agena or Kuma lines of processors, which are supposed to top Core2Duo quite easily.
