Default Socket 940

Why can't I find any Socket 940 motheboards on Newegg..?

Also, would getting like an AMD Opteron 246 be better than getting an AM2 x2 3800+?

Well its actually called Socket Am2, Socket 940 motherboards do not support AM2 Cpus and vice versa.

I'm aware of that... but there are socket 940 processors... and I can't find motherboards for them on new egg..

Also, within 160 dollars, what would be the best socket 939 processor?

940's are for servers, not much of a difference between s939 and s940 opty's

Okay, thank you both for the help... Socket 940 isn't a good idea for me then... anyway...

What would be better, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103598 with overclocking(both RAM and PSU)... or an x2 3800+ AM2 processor without overclocking both the RAM and CPU..
