Also lookin at the asus KV8 board as they are available localy.

I read the 939 do out perform 754 slightly..but are more expensive for MB/Ram?Cpu. Also, isn't a new dual die CPU or something comeing out in a year to relace the 939? If so I would rather go cheaper 754 for now. What do you think?

I do live in Canada so ordering from the states doesn't work well for me.

As posted above, Monarch Computer are the only ones to carry them. It's strange - I thought they were supposed to be widely released a few days ago, yet Monarch Computer are the only ones who have them. I'm going to get a 939 3000+, but I want to see more than one vendor carry them.

Your first choice of Chaintech VNF3-250 is probably a better choice.
I just killed my K8V (my own fault). I replaced it with a nforce3. Its a way better chipset.

I have just put a second box together its:

Athlon 64 3200+ RETAIL BOX (2200mhz/512 cache)
Epox 8KDA3J NF3 250 GB
1GB (2x512MB) DDR400 Kit
Matrox 120GB S-ATA
Xfx 5200 128mb

Win XP Pro sp2

Its not for games but it dose run them. The CPU is faster than my 3.0Ghz P4 for most things and the integrated NIC seem speedy also. After buying the Epox board I started hearing bad things and C&Q has stopped working but the systems has not crashed (ever) and its performance is GOOD.

The epox is also a good choice but not in the <90 $ like the other 2 dave01 mentioned.

Socket 939 is kinda short of mainboards. There are really only 4 to choose from.
Abit, Asus with k8T800-pro and MSI, Gigabyte NF3-250ultra. There are others but thet are from tier 2 manufaturers. Asrock, ECS.
