  So I finally upgraded...

My old S939 motherboard died, and I had to bite the bullet, but am more than happy with what I received.

AMD Athlon 64 X2 5200+ 2.7GHz 65nm
Mushkin HP2-6400 DDR2-800 2GB (2x1GB) High Performance Series CAS 4-5-4-11
Antec EA-500 500W 80mm Fan 80PLUS ROHS
Asus M3A78-EM

Totalled around 300$ pre-tax, and quite honestly... I didn't expect to see the massive performance jump I did from my single core @ 2.4 to this dual core... it's beastin and I couldn't be happier.

Thanks for the cheap future proof build AMD :)

Figured I would post, since I am happy!

Would have been nice to know, but I didn't have much internet access without a computer haha...

Oh well, this is better for me, its future proofed more so than buying another 939 and hoping it didn't die.
