Unfortunatley, socket 754 processors have been discontinued, so good luck finding one.

The fastest one using 754 mobile (which looks the same as a regular 754) was the Athlon 64 4000+ Which was only 2.6 MHz but was a great overclocker.

This is currently the only 754 on Newegg you can buy new: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819104240

EDIT- I might have found the fastest desktop one, the Athlon 64 3700+ http://www.penstarsys.com/reviews/te...700/3700_4.htm

ANOTHER EDIT- According to Wikipedia, there is no difference between 754 Mobile and 754 desktop! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_754

Both of you with your CPUs are wrong. The fasted was an AMD Athlon 64 3800+, but you might still be able to get one.

Don't bother with it. That 3800 isn't drastically faster.
754 was a dark socket for AMD. 939 was great though.
