Smile OC capabilities!!!

First of all hey everyone! Im new to this forum

i want a good cheap computer around 800$ it may seem like yeah ok kid your not going to get a decent computer for that much, but im interested in OverClocking so it might just work out for me Umm I definetly know i want a AMD but not sure a 754 or a 939 i know 939 are better for long time use and are abit faster than the 754 but the socket 754 is also alil cheaper and so is the processors. Would i still be able to run the lastest games with medium setting if I OC everything i get MB, CPU, GPU etc.?

What really is the diff between 754 and 939?

I hear that ppl say it will be outdated soon (754) or discountiud what exactly does this mean?

ANd how soon is soon?

2 months?, 2years?

Meaning they wont make 754 parts for the mobo when is does get outdated or discountiued???

Thus the MB and CPU will be worthless? if thats the case them i will spend the Xtra $$ to get 939


thnks alot for further advice and answers

well welcome to tf.. i'm not gonna answer anything yet at least, but your main concern for this computer is gaming no? People who do just school work don't care about overclocking so I figured as much.. but just want to make sure..

754 is already discontinued, although still for sale. I wouldn't go down that path as upgrading/fixing will be near impossile. If you do find parts they will probably be used/overpriced.

939 is faster because it has more pins, and it can transfer data faster. Also i believe alot of 754 boards require ECC Registered RAM...kinda sucks. It's generally just a slower chipset...

3000+/3200+ overclock almost exactly as high in most cases. if you can afford it i'd go with the 3200+ personally just for the sake of it (i like buying the better of the 2 for personal "security" lol)

Abit, Asus, MSI, are all brands to consider plus a few more. Personally i like Abit, but i heard MSI is right there too. Decide what you want and what you can afford and it should point out one of them over the other
