Hold on a second. Is this a socket 939 motherboard or a socket AM2 motherboard you're trying to shove a processor into? If it's socket 939, Athlon 64 (X2) 3800 and up is wonderful. Otherwise, I'd reccomend you spend the same amount of money and enjoy an Athlon 64 X2 4600 AM2, which is also conveniently $120.
