Hi I need help with choosing a new cpu m/b I'm a bit confused with all the different types I want a Amd 64 system I'm not sure which socket to go for I'm leaning towards the socket 939 (3500+ @2.2GHZ 512kb cache) the fx 53 is to expensive. Any sugestions ? M/b I'm leaning towards asus a8v deluxe again any suggestions are very welcome I dont understand the differance between Newcastle cpu and god knows what else.

My present rig I will be selling is asus a7n8x deluxe 2800+amd and 9700pro g/c. I will keep my new graphic card x800pro As for memory I have 1024mb pc333 and I am thinking about changing that to pc400 any ideas are very welcome . by the way this is mainly for gaming and I want as fast a pc as poss, as everybody does.
