There is not much difference right now for performance between 939 and AM2. Although if your gonna buy now I would go for an AM2 for better future compatability, as I believe the next amd chips will fit into am2, and it has the DDR2 available. I just put together two pc's with AM2 and they both come highly recommended from the results I got.

Ok... I've talked to the dude, and he's willing to go am2. So then, what would be the best ddr2 ram for the ASUS M2N32-SLI Deluxe?? 2gig min. - 4gig is problem for oc-ing right?

Corsair. If u want to go asus mobo, get corsair 6400C4 I think is the best bang for your buck atm. Everyone who's used the modules with M2N32SLI has had good results and you don't need to change any voltages to get it to work out of the box.<br />

Are you gonna be using windows 64 bit? If not dont get 4 gigs. Windows 32 bit can only recognize up to 3, and ya the more ram slots you are using it will limit your ram OC usually. 2 gigs is the magic number for most ppl now.
