I am almost positive that AMD will still have socket 939 CPUs in production until at least 2007, you can quote me on that one.

A new socket is already out (940), but 939 should still be around. 940 is for the FX processors though.

Edit: er, the 940 is for opertons.. I thought they had just come out with a new socket?

Partial true, socket 940 is another socket currently in use by AMD, however it's nothing new, and I think it may actually predate socket 939. It was originally used for server CPUs, such as the Opteron and early FX processors (FX-51 I believe, maybe FX-53).

It's strictly for Opteron use now, which is not a practical processor for the average consumer.

939 will be out for awhile, not sure how long but it will be alive and kicking for at LEAST the next 1.5 years that you have to wait.

look at socket A, it lasted for years. 939 will still be around for a while.

socket 940 came out basically when 754 and 939 did...they all came out around the time, hence a lot of confusion and questions on these forums as to which to get. 754 = dying or mobiles
939 = what you should get, normal desktop platform, 940 = server chips only. Requires ECC Registered RAM

Socket 940 was around before socket 939, and is used for Opterons and early FX's
