I would think there would be more then 6 mobos for it.

There are dozens of Mobo's with the 939 socket, don't hestitate to buy it. A new board with an M2 socket is due out next year. If you want to take the time , pull up the links for the various Mobo manufactures and you will soon see the popularity of the 939 socket. The last time I looked, ASUS had 12 boards with 939 sockets for AMD CPU's. I think AMD is the best because it runs cooler, is less expensive and in my mind faster for the money than Intel. Others will argue that and go Intel. I opted for a non-SLI board and still had so many choices it took me days to make up my mind and then I changed my mind because a friend of mine in the building bussiness recommended a paticular GIGABYTE board and also an ABIT board because he has never had a return on them. If your inerested in SLI type boards, ASUS has a brand new one out that guys say is the best but the demand is so high no one can keep them in stock. I plan on building a gamer for my grandson and the new ASUS SLI board is my choice right now.

I know that you keep saying there are tons of 939 socket mobos, but what I am telling you is that there are ONLY 6-7 that are compatible with the athlon 64 CPU, which is the CPU I was looking to buy. And for that reason, I was kind of worried about going with the Athlon 64,

Are you sure? Athlon 64's are totally mainstream right now. I can bring up quite a few of Socket 939 supported motherboards for the Athlon 64.

Look here:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...ubmit=Property

More than 3/4 of the members on here use an Athlon 64 PC. I would say, it's pretty popular and well supported.

you aren't searching for motherboards correctly, there should be 90+ mobos for socket 939. I think new egg has close to a hundred.
