    Ok this is the chip:​
    Athlon 64​
    Model # = ada3400aep5ar​
    Socket = 754​
    Core = ClawHammer/Hammer​
    Name = Athlon 64 3400+​
    Operating Frequency = 2.2Ghz​
    L1 Cache = 64kb+64kb​
    L2 Cache = 1mb​
    Proces type = 0.13µm​
    Hyper Transport ​
    Voltage = 1.5V​
    THis is with a Gigabyte GA-K8NS Pro Socket 754 NVIDIA nForce3 250 MoBo for about $250....good? I was told there were some issues with the 250..any truth?​
    Is this a good set up?Or should I try and go with a Venice 939 3200+ set up?​

    Unless you want to by old technology, get the socket 939. 754 will soon be sempron only.

    IMO, I don't think anything is wrong with going s754 unless you regularly upgrade. if you expect to keep this computer system intact for a few years, then go for it.

    if you decide to go a s754 route I recommend going with http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16813152043
    put that with a 3400 and you could have it below $250.



    I ended up going s939 only because I got the Venice 3200 and the gigabyte ga-k8ns ultra for extremely cheap (less than $200 total).

    The best 754pin motherboards are made by Shuttle, IMO.... if you get a 754pin system -- get the Shuttle SN85G4

    Ok thanks this is just a replacement for my current cpu...it died so i figured I'd go with the A64, I am willing to spend around 300 to 350..I might upgrade later but I am undecided as of now. So if anyone can point me in the direction of a decent 939 board and chip (probably3200+) i would appreciate it.

    Thanks
