    Re: is there such a thing as a socket a/socket 754/939 combo motherboard

    One thing that looks good, is the 4 pin 12v feed is used on that board.I KNEW I shouldn't have read this thread! It's got me thinking now. And NO ,there is no such thing as a socketA/socket 754and socket 939. That would be a board with 3 sockets on it. BD51

    The A64, in any flavor, requires the 4 pin 12v feed.

    I have a friend who calls Asrock "As-us hidden behind a rock"

    It's in fact, a division of Asus who makes cheap, presumably lower-quality boards, so Asus would not want to compromise it's name brand on that.

    No duallie, that's for sure!!! On the other hand, I just checked the price for most 754 boards on newegg, and the cheapest one of a well known manufacturer costs 2 US$ more than this K8-combo. I think this board would make a great entry-level A64 board, pair it with a 2800+/3000+ or even a Sempron 3100+, and you got an amazing budget system that performs greater than my A7N8X-E Deluxe, and gives you the potential for going 939 when those CPUs start selling for acceptable prices.

    With PC components being what they are, in a few months time ,the 939 stuff will start coming down, and they will be moving on towards something else probably the BTX boards. That's really gonna hurt, as not much from your old build can be salvaged.Unless you got a bottomless wallet, it's better to ride the tailend, rather than ride the front of the beast, it's DEFINITELY a lot cheaper. I have a free copy of XP64 Beta that I'm dying to test out, so I'm building a 64 SOMETHING soon, as it's only free for a year. BD51

    My TURBO2 MSI rigs are still out there running without a problem. almost 3 years now.HEY, it's ONLY $75 The fact of quality remains, long after the value of low price is forgotten. (copped from a snap-on tool truck sign)I have often looked at cheap boards, but I have always bought MSI. BD51

    Take time to do the important things
    today since you may not get a
    tomorrow.

    Anytime you give your $0.02 you better have a qtr
    to back it up.

    No, it's just the KING of the KT133A boards, and supports all the 266fsb XP cpus up to 2600. Fairly rare now.I'm thinking that the new KM4AM-V is a good board with support all the way up to 3200/400fsb socket A and it also supports sata etc A real good buy at less than $60. I'm gonna try one out next month. I also have built a rig based on MSIs KM2M-Combo board ,that uses either sdram or ddr. and that's doing real well. BD51

    Ya gotta admit , it's a good way for ASUS to use up all those left over parts BD51

    I'm quoting myself to state, I WAS WRONG!! visit www.asrockamerica.com and you will see that they are now making a socketA board ,that is upgradable to either socket 754 ,OR socket 939, with the use of an upgrade module! Pretty neat, if it works, OCW claims they tried one out with an FX53 cpu without a problem.This could become the wave of the future, and give ASROCK a big push into the limelight. BD51
