In the near future I plan on building a 64 bit amd system. I was
wondering if someone could describe in detail a Budget, get me in the
door, 64 bit barebones configuration [motherboard,cpu,ram, etc]

thanks to all

You would start with the 754 pin Athlon 64 2800 for the CPU... A cheap
video card. Ati 9200 or Nvdidia 5200. MB for this can be found for
under $100.. You just have to start shopping around and read up on each
of your potential purchases and make a decision based on your needs
and budget.

939 pin or 754 pin, which one do you think in the end will become the
'standard' end all be all like socket A did?

just curious.
thanks again.

For Athlon 64, single Core CPU, socket 939 will be the "standard" for a
few years.

The Sempron socket 754 will be the dominant CPU on that platform.
Socket A is being phased out and 754 pin Athlon 64s are also being
phased out.

Dual-core Athlon 64 CPUs will migrate to a socket 12xx sometime in 2006.
There are supposed to be dual-core socket 939 CPUs out later this
year. The reason to move up to a 12xx pin socket in 2006 is to
accommodate separate memory controllers for each CPU in the core. In
the 939 pin configuration the HT will be shared between the 2 CPUs.

how much do you want to spend?
what do you want to use it for?

you need to think about these questions before you decide what you're
going to buy!!

Between $800-$999

>what do you want to use it for?

Moderate gaming[starcraft type games] to just normal stuff like word
processing.

Bottom end about £350. Top end about £1700.

IMO don't bother yet if you've got a high end Athlon XP. There's not
much benefit until MS release Windows XP64 AND 64 bit versions of
software start to come out.

Give it at least 6 months. In 6 months time everything should have
settled down, stable drivers will have been released and alot of 64 bit
patches for 32 bit games and AMD will have revealed whether or not
they're going dual core Socket 939. Prices will also have fallen by
then, SATA2 should be more established too.

939. 754 speeds are already stopped at 3500. IT news is on about dual
cores on socket 939 later on.

If you have to ask, apparently you are not well versed on the subject at
all! The Sempron will become the dominant CPU on the socket 754
platform. The old socket A is being phased out along with 754 pin
Athlon 64s. The socket 939 with be the dominant platform for single CPU
Athlon 64s. Dual core Athlon 64s will migrate to a 12xx pin socket
sometime in 2006, which will give each internal CPU its own memory
controller. The 939 Athlon 64s will share one memory controller.

I stand corrected. Its been a couple of months since I bothered looking
at 754.

Things are changing so fast now, I must be getting too old for it
these days I guess ... But thanks to all who responded to my
questions..

I thought Socket M2 - the 1207 pin one - was for DDR2, do you have a link
for dual memory controllers?

I did at the time I posted, but I didn't bookmark the reference. It was
an article in one of the publications on-line.
