    the athlon one.
    runs cooler, plays games better.
    however, i wouldnt buy that, i would buy a slower athlon and overclock it.
    System Specs:
    AMD athlon 64 3200 venice @ 2.4ghz
    Asrock Dual-939SATA2
    Sapphire Radeon X800GTO2 chip r430 @ 480mhz core/540mhz mem with 1.6v vcore
    1gb Corsair XMS TwinX PC3200 timings 2-3-3-6 at 400mhz

    I would go with the AMD 939 Board because its abit and you know its quality. My only gripe is that the processor they give you is a single core. With the prices of the athlon X2's coming down to reduculously low i would by the board by itself and then get a dual core athlon as it is better then the 4000+. But if gaming is not an issue then that combo is a great deal. Amd is better for gaming peirod, besides intels new Core 2 duo processors. Actually check those out if intel suits you better.
    My System:
    -AMD Athlon 64 3200+ Manchester Em4 Revision
    -Abit KN8-ULTRA
    -X800GTO2 @ X850XT PE (16 pipelines)
    -1024MB PQI TURBO DDR 400 @ (2x512) Dual Channel
    -450W Heavy Duty Rosewill Powersupply
    -Samsung Syncmaster 940BF>>>NEW
    -Seagate 250GB 16MB cache (perpendicular recording) with NCQ...

    Well, I would give Newegg a try. They usually have some pretty nice combos. As for the comparison, the AMD S939 X2 is better than the Pentium D. However, the Core 2 Duo is the current leader. Personally, I would look to Newegg and wait a while to save some money. I would not build a system using an outdated socket. If you have to get a combo, then the 939 combo will be a better performer.
