Both are good buys

Although i think the 955 might oc futher as they came in c3 revisions aswell

Get the 955 over the 965, make sure its a c3 since both will oc as far

I would at least go with the C3 revision 945 that Newegg sells. Isn't the 940 a C2? Of course 955 is better yet.

955/965 definitely.

I'm sure you'd like to upgrade eventually. Since Bulldozer is going to be only on AM3+ and AM3 CPUs will be compatible on an AM3+ board, getting another AM2+ CPU doesn't seem worth it unless it's very, very cheap.

i cant upgrade very often being in college and all so i dont think i will be able to get a new mobo for bulldozer any time soon. this is why i chose a mobo that can use AM3 CPU's so that i can get an upgrade quickly.

It's going to depend on price. If you can get a REALLY good deal on the 940 then go for it. Otherwise, if you're talking like $10-20 I would get a 955 C3.

I am still using a 940 with 1066 ddr2. I love it.. It is super fast with my SSD. and my Raptor. I am waiting for the bulldozer to come out.
