I got a feeling that socket 754 is just going to be aroud just for the samperon CPUs. And even there, I beleived that SKT 754 will be phased out. Even though AMD is currently telling every one otherwise.

Also, by the time he needs a new CPU, he will also need a new motherboard as well. The same would be true if he was getting Socket 939. Do you think people will actually be using Abit AV8s for Athlon 64 6000+ or whatever is in the future of socket 939? I don't think so, there will be bigger, badder mobos out then to better accompany the processors of that day. So if he can save a few bucks by getting socket 754, whats the crime in that?
Comparatavly speaking they are, and do you REALLY want a link?

You can't argue with DJ-CHRIS' documentation.

Nope i spent 30 seconds researching it.

754 is not half bad, but it's not worth considering buying a new non sempron system with them.

Why is that? With the setup I gave, the 754 system will outperform the 939 system.
