I rebuild a new system from scratch every nine to twelve months or so anyway, so the 754 was well worth it in my case.

Save for the 939 if you don't have the budget to upgrade often.

I agree that waiting it out is the best course of action. It'd really suck if you bought a new peice of tech only to have it have a flaw no one realised it had, or have it become obsolete from a competing peice of tech.

Still weak, I know, but getting better:
CPU: AMD AthlonXP 2500+
1.8GHz @ 333 FSB
512 DDR 2700
160 GB westerndigital hd
Dual booted with XP/Fedora Core 5
PCchips M848A mobo
nVIDIA GeForce MX 4000 video Card
Associate\'s Degree in Applied Computer Sciences.
A+ Certified for Hardware and Operating Systems. Network+ Certified

if you want it to be more upgradable, get the socket 939 as socket 754 will not be here for long

if you want to wait you can get a board with PCI-Express (when Nforce4 chipsets come out to support it) and by then the 3500+ will be less expensive
