Why would you think it will go away like 754 and 939?
I've read the same thing, but "a while" for electronics is a lot quicker than a while for most other things. Quad core will be out before long, and I may upgrade then unless I "need to" update before then. For now, 939 is nearly neck and neck with an AM2 as of a couple of weeks ago. Someone did a comparison test here. And pricewise it is the better deal right now. But who knows next year.

I'd sit on it and keep updated (this is a great place to do that) and when your ready to buy you'll know what to get.

I might even buy a s939 system.
I really never going to notice those 2% performance difference to AM2,
and everything is cheaper.

Edit: Hm... DDR RAM is sooo expensive.
What is going on there?
It costs more than DDR2?!

DDR Ram is being phased out, DDR2 is the standard now.
Get a-
AM2 x2 3800
Asus M2N-SLI Deluxe
Leadtek WinFast PX7900GS
1GB of ram(Get some more when you have more money)
€616


You'll most probably have to look @ getting a cooler as the CPU is OEM.
Take a look in the AMD Air Forum

bit over budget but I only know that german store.
