    AMD sockets

    Hi guys

    I know it's gonna sound dum, but I have been out of touch with the hardware world for a while now

    I wanted to know what's the difference between socket 939 and 940 in AMD grading, as I decided to upgrade my system a little and I can't seem to find skt 940 motherboards on sale in the site I usualy shop with.

    Hi,

    You should find most of what you want to know here:

    http://computing-dictionary.thefreed...MD64%20sockets

    Basically a 939 is "a 940 with its head kicked in"................. like it is a cheap option for AMD 64s

    Just remember that "balance is the key"................ no point in having a fancy MoBo if the rest of the build doesn't match?

    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
    What profiteth a man if he gains the entire World at the expense of his immortal soul?
