What the best Processor to fit in 939 socket??? - Page 4

post #31 of 62
That's the beauty of an SSD (or any HDD really), it can be transferred to a new setup in the future.

And, if the current board only supports SATA 1.5Gbps, you can also expect a speed boost when you plug the SSD into a SATA II or III port on your new setup.

I was recently looking into updating an old 939 with a 3500+ thats been in the closet... after considering costs and adding another DDR1 I gutted the case as I was better off buying a AMD X2 560(unlocked X4 B60) with AM3+ MB for $90 at Microcenter .... add another $20 for DDR3.......

I agree with MrTOOSHORT.Opterons,I used to have a Opteron 170.It was a great overclocker.

I can't say a SSD in an older Socket 939 system is going to have any huge performance boost but it sure beats IDE drives. Sata I only does 1.5GB, the boards just didn't have support for Sata II. My old machine is a Socket 939 with an Athlon 64 X2 3800+ and it's still working, would like to get more RAM for it to get it to 4GB but don't want to sink money into it. I did have to replace the PSU with a cheap 400W I got at Microcenter for $15 bucks, at least it gave an old rig a new lease on life for a backup system. I can probably pitch my backup's backup because the floppy disk drive is just showing it's age. biggrin.gif

As awesome as 939 was, you won't get a huge speed difference (10-20% at most) with a new 939 processor, and you will be paying about 1/2 the cost of upgrading to a processor 2-4 times faster. If your budget is really that tight then yyou might consider the Opteron, but as you're using an OEM Board, it's entirely possible that it won't accept a server CPU. OEMs like the idea of people not being able to upgrade their systems overmuch.

I have very little knowledge of HP's business practices at the time, so if someone else knows more, I would rely on their word ans not mine... but today, with their more modern products, I would actually phone HP and ask them - as it really can be iffy.

It's not that my budget is tight, its just for my dad. He keeps complaining about how slow his computer is and I just wanted to surprise him with an upgrade that will speed up his system. Maybe an ssd is the way to go. Its not that the system is bad, though it is old. The computer works just fine but its just slow. I definitely think an ssd would help a lot but I figured I could get a faster cpu for a lot cheaper that would at least help out a little. I dont have a lot of money and its not for me but I just wanted to help my dad out if I could as long as it didnt cost too much. Thanks for the help guys.

For about $125 you could upgrade the CPU, PSU, and motherboard. You could recycle the case, DDR2 RAM, and optical drive.

$40AMD Sempron 145 Sargas

$45ASRock N68C-S UCC

$40SeaSonic SS-300ES

Add this to upgrade the memory to DDR3.
$25Mushkin Enhanced 4GB

Make it an early present!

Slow how though? Is he still running XP on it? How much memory does he have? As XP matured the amount of memory needed to run it kind of creeped up. Today I wouldn't run XP with less than 1GB of memory and 2GB or more would be about the best situation.

Heck if it would help you I'll drop four 512MB sticks of DDR1 in an envelope and send to you. I will just end up throwing it in the garbage eventually anyway. I need my old opty though...i will be buried with that CPU. Man that was a beast. The socket 939 platform is what started me on overclocking...messed around a little before with other CPUs, but a socket 939 3200+ got me into the big leagues and I quickly moved up to an Opteron 170.

Same here: If you really want it, I've got over 6 sticks off DDR and I've got a 2x2 set of DDR2 800. All the DDR sticks are 512MB except for 1. They also run at 333MHz
