Default AMD Socket A

how long will AMD continue to make socket A mobos/processors? will sockets 754 and 940 replace the already somewhat old socket A? if so how soon

They eventually will replace them, but I wouldn't worry for a while... can't give you an exact time frame as it all depends on the demand for the product (as well as price).

amd 64 bit are already at 940pin. and yes they are moving with 939 pin its suppost to make it go wonders in quickness. You can get a 754pin amd right now but a 940pin configuartion will be around a good couple years short life span but for now it will do great

who cares what it supports , there is no point in waiting for the new stuff to come out. that is just over-planning. it reminds me of people who buy survival gear like gas masks and stockpile truckloads of canned food in case of a disaster. you will be waiting forever.
