I cant make up my mind between a socket 940 or a socket 939 I will be mostly playing games with ny x800pro, and what is the difference between the two ?

940 is the server socket, for opterons. 939 is the general usage socket(lol, at $500+ per cpu it doesnt seem like it). Personaly, I would recomend socket 754. S754 cpu's lack only dual channel, and are about 1/3 the price of 939. If you dont encode, 754 might actualy be faster for you because some of the 754 cpu's have more cache(helps more in games).
