Don't wait too long. They 939 and 940s are being phased out.

thanks i figured out that s939 has no future so i brought an am2 motherboard
asrock ALivenNF4g-DVI
+ an sempr0n 64 3000+ for the moment (with upgrade path to athlon X2)
I sold the old motherboards to friends (2x s754 and 2cpus)
and my new borkstation is based on am2 processor , is quite fast in compiling in c++ and soon will be dual core too

from the first impression is faster (latency lower) than the old s754 system
tuxracer (planet penguin) is running ok on the video onboard nvidia card
soon i will test other 3d games and benchmarks
