yes they still sell socket A, duron 1.8ghz with mobo=$75, about $80 with 128mb RAM

syntax266AD mobo is like $23, will handle athlonXP or duron,266mhz FSB

Glad I bought a 939 and not a 754.

What is M2? I've heard of the X2 processors, bot not M2.

I bought like a month before the 939s came out. Now I wish I would have waited. I don't think its time for an upgrade yet though. Its all good, I am glad I built because I was about to go crazy on the old HP I had before this machine I have now.

I saw this was gonna happen. I'm glad I got a 3500+ then.

i got a 939 cuz it really wasnt that much more than a 754, and better performance. but the main attraction about 939 for me was the dual channel RAM.

Socket A's are still very good and powerfull for people with EXTREMLY tight budgets.
