Smile AMD Dual Core 939

Thinking of buying one of these for a new system. What motherboard would you recommend and what speed of CPU, e.g a 4000 or 4200??

4000+ as dual core is non existent. i would not reccomend the 4200+. how large is your budget. as a rule i only reccomend the opteron 165, athlon x2 3800+ or athlon x2 4400+. i would reccomend an NF4 series DFI LanParty

Whats wrong with the Athlon X2 4200+? Nothing if that is what you can afford. IMHO. The only real difference being the size of the L2 Cache 512kb vs the 1mb of the 4400+. If you can get the 4400 sure get it, if not, 4200 is better than nothing. Personally I like the Asus A8N Sli deluxe, but the DFI's are nice.

actually the problem with the manchester 4200+ is that the price increase over the manchester 3800+ is not worth the 200mhz clock speed increase which even an overclocking noobie should be able to reach. i will never reccomend anything other than the lowest clocked of each of the dual core core variants.

Dont really have a budget, i can afford whatever is best. The 4400+ sounds good. Any links or info on the NF4 series DFI LanParty? And can any of you answer my question on another thread http://www.techist.com/showthread.php?threadid=100579

Thanks :-)

just search for it on newegg. which model you get depends on your taste but the Ultra-D would probably suit you for a motherboard

not going to happen. DDR2 is not compatable with AMD computers. besides 4gb is excessive

not when compared to the value of the 3800+. mine hit 2.4ghz at stock vcore setting and 2.5ghz within reccomended vcore. honestly the extra money for the 4200+ is not worth it in my opinion if you are willing to overclock. the 4400+ however being toledo core would be worth paying more for over the 3800+ manchester
