Do that. That's what I'm doing too.

You won't miss the 1% performance increase of AM2, but you'll live happier with less bugs until K8L.

there is no new bracket for the 754/939 9500, Zalman has released a new version of the 9500 designed to work with the new AM2 mounting system.

Am I making myself hard to understand or something?

What's the title of this thread?

"keep 939 or skip to AM2?"

Ravanger already bought DDR1 RAM and a Zalman cooler for 939. He's asking if it's worth selling that and getting an AM2 board with new RAM...

I say there's no need for AM2, and to go on with his plan of getting 939 and keeping the G.Skill DDR1 RAM...

He already has the G.Skill DDR RAM and the Zalman cooler for 939. He would have to sell that, buy newer more expensive DDR2 RAM and cooler, get a buggy board, and for what? A %1 real increase from 939?
