well right now a 939 winchester 3200+ is $197 at newegg. above that is when the prices get outta hand. it's a great bang for the buck and you can OC it like crazy (assuming you have other quality components; ram, psu, mobo, etc.). my
There's so little difference between Socket 939 and 754 that it's only worth going to Socket 939 if you plan on usling SLi or buying a high-end 64 FX chip. Other than that, the same performance can be had for less on Socket 754.
I've never heard anything about that, and if anything, Riot's right, the 939s would run hotter, but we're talking about something you'd never notice. The 90nm chips do run cooler (TDP of about 64 watts) because they use a lower core voltage (1.4v) and smaller processes (90nm).
