what does the socket type have to do with speed? fx-53 940 and fx-53 939 are identical in speeds . . .
the main reason that you would want to get socket 939 is that is the socket type that amd is going to stick with for their 64-bit desktop lineup . . . 940 is going to be for the opteron server and 754 will be for the sempron (kind of like the intel celeron)
not only that, but 939 will have better flexibility in the future
