Venice is the best one, because you can't buy socket 939 newcastle cores anymore.

Its not a huge difference really. Only like SSE3 instructions are missing, and it generates a bit more heat. That could be a problem if overclocking.

If I had to do it all over again I would go Venice or Winchester and definately not Newcastle.

If you're running stock, you'll not even notice a difference. When it comes to overclocking... Venice is you baby.
