Yep, definately go for a 939 - AMD are phasing out the 754 pin slot but promise to use the 939 for the forseeable future, meaning you can upgrade your processor in years to come without needing a new motherboard - saving £70 at least.

The 939 equivelant will only set you back another £10-£20 anyway.

in addition to the 939 processor, i would think about getting a bit bigger power supply. 420 watts is a bit small, think about getting 480 watts min.

Not necessarily. If you get a decent branded PSU that can sustain high output for long periods of time, you could get away with a 400, or even a 370 watt. Depending on the hardware of couse, if you plan to run dual 7800GTX cards in SLI, then you'll want something a little beefier.
