Just the basic differences:

Socket 939 = typically 1meg L2 cache vs MOST socket 754's having 512.
Socket 939 = Dual channel capability, socket 754 does not dual channel.

Socket 939 is the only AMD based socket that supports SLI at the moment.

Socket 939 has a total HTT of 2000MHz, while 754 has 1600MHz.

The biggest difference being cost.

That's backwards, only Socket 939 chips that have 1MB of L2 cache are the FXs and the 4000+ which cost around $800, but you can get a 754 DTR or Mobile ClawHammer for less than $300 that also has 1MB of Cache and the dual channel memory makes very little difference anyway.
