Why don't you get a socket 939 system?

 

I can get more processing power for less with 754. The 754 systems won’t be good for future upgrades, which is ok with me since this should last me a year of two, by the time I would want to upgrade I should have enough money to buy a new computer.

Less memory bandwidth though. What do you plan on using the system for?

 

Gaming and a little DVD burning. I would have gone with 939 if I had more money but I just need something to hold me off until I can afford to spend a few thousand on a system.
