I chose the socket 939 3000+ also. Now socket 754 and socket 939 are very comparable, except the number of pins, and mostly dual channel memory features. BUT, socket 754 bit the dust here this past august if I remember right. I'm still saying, I don't care what the current budget is. If I were him, without a slight doubt in my mind, I would SAVE MY MONEY until he can afford a socket 939 setup. That way he won't have wasted the socket 754 money when he needs to upgrade again.

edit: I'm not sure if there's a 3700+ s939. I think there is, but not sure. I KNOW there's a s754 3700+.

I was thinking of this when I spoke about the 939 3700+. Is this right?

Here's the 3700+ 754 I believe you're speaking of.

Thank you for your replies. I agree, 939 holds more of a future, but my bro is acting very strict on his budget.

He is gonna go for the 754. He just wants a system that gives reliable performance. It's better than socket A, and although it's outdated by 939, has some decent features.
i've been running my s754 for over a year now.
still runs the new games, still loads my appz very fast, multi-tasks fairly well and ****, it's only a 2800+

i didn't need the top gamer rigg cause...i can still play all the new games at a great rez/fps without having to spend that extra 200 dollars on stuff.
