Buying 939 board pointless?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Long story short: I have an Athlon 64 3000+ "Winchester" (D0, 90 nm) that most likely works, along with some spare parts that I could use so I'm wondering whether it's worth the trouble and money to buy used 939 board for around $30?

If so, then what should I look for? What to avoid among 939 boards, and which ones are known to be decent?

If its cheap enough, sure. You'll be wanting to look for the NF4 chipset (SLI usually). The ATI Crossfire 32 lane boards are great too (dual 16x slots), but they're extremely finicky.

Keep in mind that Athlon 3000 you have is worth around $5 or so at most. So I certainly wouldn't dump a ton of money into this machine. But 939 is still great to play around with.

Such a rig can be quite decent Of course, no heavy gaming, but it will handle decently almost anything else you throw at it

I had an EpoX 939, it broke. Look for something else

AsRock also has some 939 boards with 785G and 790GX chipset, which would be a great choice. You can find them on their website but I don't know about availability in the US.

They're NOT available in the US, without having a friend in the UK.

Thanks for input guys!

My socket A rig is still going strong as "gaming"/internet machine for my grandma and little brother so this thing would be actually an upgrade.

I normally wouldn't bother but I have every other part (including fantastic Sapphire X800GTO2 that can be unlocked) and I hate having unused hardware so much that I even considered resurrecting my first very own socket 7 rig (but that would mean breaking into a museum so I gave up).

Not sure if it wouldn't be better to buy something more recent since I also have 2GB of DDR2 lying around, but I really love AMD since I grew up on their chips.

The DDR2 won't help you honestly. Even though its a 780G and 790X chipset motherboard, its still Socket 939. So you're still limited to DDR1 (DDR400+). The memory controller is on the CPU. Since its a 939 CPU, you're stuck with regular DDR.

EDIT:
And I agree. If I still had my A8N32-SLI Deluxe, SLI Ultra D, CFX3200, or A8R32-MVP Deluxe...I'd be all over it! Especially with my old Opteron that hit 3.38GHz from 1.80GHz stock, and my DDR400 sticks that did almost DDR600.

I love 939 gear if you couldn't tell. There's a link in my sig for the 939 club too. For once you get it up and running.

Yeah I know, what I meant is perhaps buying cheapo CPU+ on AM2+/775 to go with these sticks.

I found new ASRocK 939A790GMH for $65, seems like there's nothing better from brand new parts, gonna have a look at local ebay.

I found new ASRocK 939A790GMH for $65, seems like there's nothing better from brand new parts, gonna have a look at local ebay.
Just keep your eyes peeled for Asus A8N series, and basically ANYTHING from DFI (you will likely want to keep it on the NForce chipset though). The Abit AN8 32x is also killer (just that one though).
