damn database errors.......this is the third time i have tried to post this....... the one from ebay is a socket A AthlonXP, the one from ebuyer is a socket 939 64bit processor...... the one from ebuyer is faster and better, but you need a socket 939 mobo to use it, the other uses the socket A mobo

S.T.A.L.K.E.R.well, socket A is old, and socket 939 is the newest and latest and greatests...... and you post has disappeared......dont worry, we seem to be having database issues

not exactly, its the pin count on the processor. socket A has 462, or 472 i forget, gold pins on it. socket 754 has 754 gold pins, socket 939 has 939 gold pins, socket 940 has 940 pins. the socket has to be the same on the mobo or else the processor wont physicly fit in the ZIF socket. the newest processors use 939 pin type, but its not really faster than 754, the processors are faster but its almost the same. an example is a 3400+ 939 (which they dont make but for examples sake) and a 754 3400+, they would give abouut the same performance. if you want spme pf the best processors go 939.

there is only one socket 940 CPU, and socket 939 is the faster when compared to the socket A's (46* )

Socket 939s are faster because of faster cores, faster and better memory controllers, faster FSB, and I can go on. Get a Socket 939 processor its faster. But the old Socket A are still good and still very fast. But with all the new technology like SLI it be better to get a Socket 939 and a PCI-Express motherbored.
