Default What 939 Socket Processor?

Well turns out my 3400+ Processor got damaged as well. Looking out there there seems to be a lot of options for me in the $200 ish region. Anyone know of a good CPU with a 939 socket?

The opterons are nice, i got one from monarchcomputer. The 3700+ is an opteron that hasnt been tested as much. Just check out the 3XXX series of AMD Athlons.

Yes I was looking at a 3500+ or better, but there are many different ones in the $190-240 range to choose from lol! Not sure which I should look into so I am asking. :-)

If you have $240 to spend, go with the 3700+ because it has the extra 512kb of L2 over the 3500.

Which of these?

1. http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/Produc...ctCode=80719-5

2. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103595

I have an aftermarket cooling fan already so no need to have one.

Get the opteron http://www.monarchcomputer.com/Merch...ct_Code=120333 Its OEM so its abit cheaper since you already have a HSF. They are basically the same thing though.

Someone else feels this one can be easily clocked to match the performance of the CPU suggested here and I would save money. He does not feel the gains between the chip are worth the extra cash..... http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/Produc...ctCode=80100-R
