Default Socket 939 vs 754

Well I have a choice here. WHich ones better? The MOBO and processors are cheaper. I was going for the AMD 3000+ with a gigabyte GA-K8NS-939. But the MSI MOBOs are cheaper with the 754 socket in them. Which will be better for me (im a gaming man...)

Im in the same boat but I think I am going to spend the extra money. If you are a gamer then you want to look in to the new SLI motherboards and they are only availabe for the AMD chips.

My 754 has dual channel support too. I look at the benchmarks and there isn't much difference between my Athlon 64 3000 (754) and the 64 3000 (939). But still go with 939, the latest.

None of the 754 have dual channel support u have to buy a mobo that processes it instead of giving it to the cpu!! If the cpu proceses the information it is faster than the northbridge or the mobo chip doin it!!

I don't see much of a difference in speeds in the benchmarks I have seen between my 3000+ 754 and the 3000+ 939.

Then again I don't give. My CPU is more then enough to handle any game, or anything for that matter I throw at it.

Yes but not for some time.. this is what concerns me:

Athlon 64 3000+ 1.8 GHz 90 nm Socket 939 Now Q3'05

Why? That could be a good 64-bit budget CPU.

I think the AMD 64 3000 sales are better.. because not many people can afford the higher end AMD 64s.

If you look even they are moving Semprons to 939 chipsets. Though that'll be a while. It will be a while before they get rid of 754.
