Either way, I would go to S939. You would have to get a 3000+, but the S939's have a built in memory contoller on the chip or something like that. A good board would be the Asus AV8, or if you can afford it, the Asus A8N. Other good ones are the MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum and Abit A8V third eye. All S939 boards. If you must stick with S754's, the Asus K8N-E is a good one.
