    I'm really considering the ASRock 939Dual-SATA2 for my next upgrade. Not having to upgrade your GPU when you got AGP and still wanting compatibility with PCI-Express and then o'course the socket 939 we're all after. ;) AND when socket M2 comes out there will be a CPU-Upgrade daughterboard available that'll enable the use of the newer CPU's as well. Excellent upgraders board IMO.

    My next upgrade will probably be that board and an Opteron 144. ;)

    And all 939 boards will take DDR, or did you mean Dual Channel? :confused:

    the 939dual-sata2 should be considered becuase its a good board,
    but for M2, if you plan to move to DDR2 might aswell get a new board, the daughter board will probobly be problematic, think CPU plus heatsink plus a couple of DDR2 slots, all installed and hanging perpendicularly from the board being held there by a simple slot lock, not a pretty sight, especialy if you want to mount a beefier heatsink then the AMD inbox,

    as for CPU, a socket 939 venus opteron 144 sounds like a good overclocking candidate, and has more or less the same price more or less as a 3000+ venice, same speed, double the cache

    and for gods sake, get rid of that POS nanya ram, :)
