<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Thumb"> 775, 939 is becoming dated (DDR RAM). Don't get me wrong: I love my x2 3800 that is a S939 - it smooookees! But for longevity and upgradeability 775<br><br>
If you want AMD look to Am2 W/ DDR2 RAM<br><br>

Oops... forget: Core 2 Duo of course. (E6600 for the cache, E6400 is an Allendale, not Conroe - I just did not have the cash, E6800 next year?)

For budget go S939... The lower level x2s are very nice and have a nice price tag. Although it is dated, it still works. Go PCIe and you can upgrade GFX when you need to.<br />
<br />
Otherwise, go 775 and get yourself a Conroe.
