I need some advice as to what mobo, and ram should I get.
what kind of cpu do you have now? how much money do you have/want to spend?
a lot of people run x2's in socket 939.
but, anyway, if you have the money to spend, i agree with everyone else, i just thought i'd throw that out there about the dual core that will fit in your socket.
i don't think anything will last you three years and still be top notch/cutting edge, so "lasting three years" is really relative to what you are going to be using it for.
but yeah, unfortunately the only upgrade path for 939 is the x2... although i'm sure it could last three years as well.
