You could be the envy of gamers everywhere in 2004.
The ULI chipset on the 939 dual sata II is a crap overclocker, and the board needs voltmods to clock decently.
The NF3 chipset on the MSI board will kill it, no questions asked, right out of the box.

Best overall AGP 939 board would be:
for Intel - Asrock 4coredual-VSTA
for AMD - MSI K8N neo2 Platinum

Best 462 boards are:
DFI Ultra B
Abit AN7
Abit NF7

As for processors
939 - any dual core Opteron (180,175,170,165) or any dual core A64 X2 (3800+ - 4800+)
462 - any Barton core (2500+ - 3200+) including the mobiles and the Sempron 3300+
