Socket 939

I know AMD has pretty much abandoned socket 939 but i was wondering which was the best processor that you can put in them. I currently have an AMD 64 X2 3800 and i just wish the computer had a little more power. Am i stuck with just AMD socket 939 processors or are any other types (even Intel) cross compatible with this type of socket? thanks in advance for the help

    Your stuck with only socket 939 processors, which I believe the strongest was the Athlon X2 FX-60. Basically your looking at buying a used dual core that isn't noticably better than what your currently using. Personally I would start saving for a new system.

  4. i am running a socket 939, x2 4200....you can check ebay...a few socket 939,s there...though they sometimes bring a decent price yet. the x2 4800 is bring crazy high prices...my x2 4200 can be had around $50+....2.2ghz...some of the socket 939,s have same speed..just different amount of cache.

    you can go to frys ectronics and buy a motherboard and cpu for some of the prices socket 939 cpu.s bring...not sure why they bring such high prices....sort of a mistery. the athlons you can get cheap now, but the socket 939 does not come down much
  5. The opteron version of the FX-60, the opteron 185, might still be floating around too. It was exactly the same as the FX-60 except the multiplier was locked.
