Why would I need a new cpu? I have a amd 64 3400+, these are supported by 939
No they aren't. There might be a Socket 939 CPU, but they are still two seperate CPUs dude. The socket refers to the amount of pins. Yours has 754 pins, that won't fit in a board that has 939 pin holes.

CHRIST. This sucks. I figured since my last set-up with a board that had dual channel (AMD 2600+) that, you know, they would naturally use the dual channel from there on. That's some bs if you ask me. Why would an upgrade not have dual channel. Infuriating.

me: in fact the san diego\'s pretty much hit the very top on games
friend: yeah
friend: its all the illegal labor

Like I said dude, that's it's always a good idea to do this kind of research before you buy something. When AMD64's first came out there was 754, 939, and 940 predominately. Of course 940 is mainly server used boards however, so the main question was ..."well what about 754 and 939?" Everytime someone asked that I always suggested they pay more for socket 939 because of dual channel and more upgradability.

It's been known for some time that AMD would basically drop support for their 754 line with the exception of the mobile processors (which I hope migrate to socket 939)

I know it sounds bad, but honestly it's one of those things, especially when buying a motherboard and CPU, the two main components of the system that you research this kind of stuff.

Sorry man

You could always try and sell it of course, that'd be your best bet.

But hell dual channel doesn't make THAT kind of difference anyway, 5-20% increase in performance, and 20% is pretty drastic in most cases.
