no such thing as 939 brisbane.
if everything else is okay get the cheapest 939 you can find until you can pop out enough for new hardware.
i think i saw an x2 4200 on the egg for like 60 bucks.
actually it was this 3600:
Newegg.com - AMD Athlon 64 X2 3600+ Manchester 2.0GHz 2 x 256KB L2 Cache Socket 939 89W Processor - OEM
the 4200 is 65 bones.
the 3600 will suffice, you will have to OC it pretty good, as im sure you know. also sure it will be no prob for ya!

mildly. But if you get 3GHZ, it shouldn't be a problem.

i think almost anything will bottleneck those cards. i know for sure you will gain FPS with a 600mhz overclock. no doubt.
that chip is a good tide-over man, it'll treat you right.
you have any idea what happened to your other chip?
