Get one or the other. I prefer you get a motherboard that supports socket 939 and a CPU that is socket 939 compatible. You will have confilct is you mismatch the sockets.

I had that board, as well (the GA-K8NF-9). It's a good one.

Yes, they will be phased out eventually but not anytime soon. The Socket 939 may take over the Socket 754 line of budget PCs when the M2 comes around. Kind of like how AGP will eventuall be phased out by PCI-express.
