In the future ur gone be happy wit the 939 socket. Its better and plus the 754 has a old past. There isnt a big difference in money but its up to u. Well i have a different opinion on the asus bords and i prefer the abit ones because they offer what i really need and i kno som people that have the 939 av8 and like it alot.

i believe it comes with a pretty ugly heatsink and fan. you will want to upgrade if overclocking, running stock it wont get too hot at all.
