Uh, Sempron64 2600+ goes for about $65 Socket 939 is the "performance-minded" platform, Socket 754 is AMD's value solution.

I know, but I want to be able to upgrade to a current platform when I have a bit more money, and 754 does not support dual core, and it's fastest CPU is 2.4 GHz. 775 is at least up to date.

edit: I was just thinking, isn't AMD rolling out a sempron64 line for 939 soon?
