on one of my rigs, i still run a socket 939 amd 64 4200 (2.2ghz)........i went on ebay,, and they still get a good price for this cpu, and i just wonder why is this old cpu getting a decent price yet as old as it is????

i was thinking of upgrading this with something in the amd line, that would significantlly increase my speed, but cheap.....any suggestions???

would this cpu be a lot faster than the socket 939 4200-

It was a very popular skt, and holds a lil value to this day
And yes, that cpu would be much faster, specially with a lil ocing

i could not wait when i bought back then, and went socket 754, which was not bad, but not as popular as the socket 939.....amd must of sold a ton of em.

The X2 7850 is an AM2+. It will not fit in a socket 939 motherboard. I was in the same dilema when I had to upgrade my X2 4400+ (toledo core, s939).

Understand, the reason for the higher pricing is because its enthusiasts that change cpus, not average Joe, and amongst enthusiasts, skt 939 ruled in its day, as well as perf

i know the x2 7850 will need new motherboard, video card....would there be a big significance in performance vs the 939 i have?

If you're buying a new mobo, then better get a AM3 mobo and an Athlon X2 2xx.

+1. 939 uses DDR, AM2(+) uses DDR2. If you are buying a new M/B anyway why are you buying into obsolete tech? Go AM3 and you options will open up dramatically.

People want change s939 single core to dual. It is hard to find your cpu in sale. Lots of athlon 64 x2 uses am2
