I would go for the 939 just because the 940 is a dead socket and there isnt much if any of a performance difference. Plus you wont have to buy ecc registered ram if you go for 939.

I wouldn't say that s940 is a dead socket, but it will require a ECC RAM that is more expensive, a bit slower and probably less overclockable. The s939 is the way to go when going with an FX"<The_Coolest> You can't unwaste wasted CPU cycles" - Start FOLDing now!

939 since not only u don't need registered memory but also better chipsets.
