Good Afternoon,

My old machine fizzed on me around Christmas time. I've narrowed it down to a Mobo failure. I thought I might salvage it and use it as a backup machine, but I'm amazed at the prices that are being asked for a socket 939 Mobo. Ive googled, looked on ebay etc, and have been unable to find a reasonably priced Mobo. I'm thinking about parting out the machine and calling it a day. Dollar for dollar, pricing out much newer boards, it doesn't look like it would pay me to invest any more money in a system that's outdated. Does anyone know of a place that I could get one for around, say $40.00? I don't understand why socket 939's are holding their value like this. TIA and have a nice day. I have a 3700+ and a 3000+ processor for the setup.

The S939 was an excellent format. I don't know why the components have all but disappeared & become overpriced. Older S754 boards or Intel S478 boards are still available, many of them less than $30. Anyhow, here's a board for $50:

Hi Jam,

Thanx for the info. I see most of the boards have a pci-e slot. My old one had an agp slot, so I have a radeon x800gto card. It was a gigabyte ga-k8ns-939 with nforce 3 on it. I found one of those, but they wanted $80.00 for it. i don't think so. I'll check out your other suggestions, but it may be headed for the parts bin. Thanx again.

Wow, that makes it even more difficult. There were very few S939 boards that supported AGP.

Yeah, so I gather from looking around. Most of them are pci-e. So that would require a new vid card too.
