Right now,the dual core processors from Intel and AMD are beyond my budget,so it seems to me that the Athelon 64 is a good deal for the money,for how I use a computer.
But I have an eye to the future.
A 939 barebones,with 184 pin memory,with an Athelon 64 is cheaper than the comparable A2 with 240 pin memory and an Athelon 64 processor.
A couple/three years from now,when Vista has been around long enough to be repaired,when dual core processors come down in price.if I choose to put in a dual core CPU and maybe some more memory,will I be sorry I got the 939,184 pin? Will the 939 support the 64 Vista system?
I suppose another way to ask that is what do I get for the extra money with the A2 socket and 240 pin ram.
The Consumer magazine that does not accept advertising says the best deal for the money is something good that is one generation old,and that sounds reasonable to me.
I don't edit motion pictures or play drastic games. Is the 939 the better value for me?
