Pretty sure my motherboard is broken, and I need a replacement. They don't make 939 socket motherboards anymore though... are there any new socket types that will take a socket 939 processor?



Current Motherboard (broken): MSI RD480 Neo2-FI 939 ATI Radeon Xpress 200 CrossFire ATX AMD


New Motherboard Requirements:
* Fits a Socket 939 processor. (AMD 64 X2 4400+ Toledo 2.2 GHz Socket 939 Dual-Core Processor)
* One PCI Express x16 slot for video card. (ATI Radeon X1800 XT 512 MB PCI Express x16)
* Four DIMM slots for RAM. (Corsair XMS 512MB 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200))


Not requirements, but would be nice:
* NO CROSSFIRE (I don't have 2 video cards, so why bother?)




... that's about it.

You can still get socket 939 boards
939 I wouldn't recommend them brands though, look around for asus,abit,msi you should still find some it not ebay has them.

In answer to your question if you have a 939 pin cpu the you have to have a 939 socket motherboard no others will work

Crappy....

The 939 socket type lasted what - 2 years at best? Probably 1.5. Seriously, what a load of crap. ><

Thanks, btw, for answering my tough questions. :-D
