No, you cannot put a 754 CPU in a 939 motherboard.
The 3500+ will be a big difference compared to 3000+, esspecially because the 939 3500+ can run dual channel.

They make a socket 939 Athlon 64 3000+ - get it here- http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...103-499&depa=1 It features the New Winchster core which is better than the newcastle. You will have to flash the bios on that mobo before you can use it though. Here is a good heatsink for it also since it doesn't come with one- http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...106-036&depa=1 .

Also if you get this Sapphire Radeon 9800 pro card you will save alot of money- http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...102-268&depa=1
The other one is an All-In-Wonder and it comes with alot of un-needed stuff imo.

I would really get a new case and a combo drive. I would also drop the floppy.

Get a USB pin-drive they are so much more useful than floppies these days.

sub in a socket 939 amd 64 3200 for 200 on new egg and a nvidia 6800 for under 300 and you should be great. i would take the 6800 over the 9800 for sure, you are over paying for that 9800 imo.

The 6800 128MB would be in his price range, but honestly, I would look into the 6600GT 256MB. It way outperforms the 9800 Pro, and is cheaper than what you are looking at for the 9800.

you wouldnt need two DVD drives. the writer does the same thing as the regular. plus if you want to burn games that badly then get a cheap cd burner.
