yeah socket 939 is probably going to dominate the poll for sure.

Mine's 754.

I guess you could say that most motherboards will support K8 CPU's.

why isnt 940 more popular? It's a bigger number, so it must be newer (my logic), and most likely better. But how come by far socket 939 is more popular? Is it simply because there are more 939 processors?

Socket 940 was used by AMD for about a year or so before they switched to Socket 939. It was used by the Athlon FX-51 and required expensive and slower ECC RAM. I think some Opterons use it still, but other than that, it's obsolete (Opterons are starting to migrate to socket 939).

Yeah, there was something about 940 requiring ECC RAM, i think. 939 doesn't.
