I am looking to upgrade my ageing PC which has a Socket 939 motherboard with a Athlon 3700+. The above processor is the fastest for my board, so if anyone has one lying around I would be delighted to take it off their hands!

i have a socket 939
amd athlon 3800x2
£47 inc postage

Thanks for the offer, but I don't think that's enough of an upgrade to justify the cash. I really want a 4400+ X2 minimum.
#3
I would be interested in your 3700 if you find a replacement, as I have a PC here that just needs a processor to get it up and running, are you planning on selling it if you ind a replacement?
#4
If I can get something up and running then I'd certainly consider selling it. I'll let you know if I have any success. I'm not sure that I have a spare heatsink or fan though, it'd be CPU only.

That's fine I already have a heatsink and fan in the said PC just no processor

If you do come round to selling it just start a FS FT thread on here but if you don't mind sending me a PM to alert me to the fact you started the thread that would be great :thumbsup:

check ebay mate! the cpu your wanting is sitting at around the £100 mark the one i offered is sitting around the £55 mark plus how is gaining an extra core not a good enough upgrade? i went from an amd athlon 4200 to this 3800x2 and noticed a vast improvment
#7
ibrox, it wasn't meant as a personal affront. Given that S939 processors are becoming hard to get hold of, it makes sense for me to get a "top of the range" one while I still can. I would rather spend more money on a better chip than less on a smaller upgrade that's all
#8
who in their right mind wouldn't buy a new am2 board and same spec processor for their £100?
#9
Quite.
#10
Just sold my 4200+ Manchester core for £70 on ebay ... sorry
#11
no problem but you could just upgrade to a am2 board and cpu managed to get decent mobo and a 6000x2 am2 for £110 all in! you will be looking at the for just a cpu! lol

Managed to get a 4400+ for £55, so quite pleased with that.

Very true..

I sold my 939 Asus mobo for £50
My 4200+ for £70
and am selling my 2.5GB PC3200 dual channel RAM for £50

Just bought an AM2 rig

Nice Gigabyte mobo with optical audio and hdmi with graphics built in £40
AM2 5000+ £38
4GB 800Mhz DDR2 £42

so not bad will make a profit on my old components :thumbsup:

If ur going to be spending 100# plus on a new cpu because u want to get "top of the range" then u may aswell go dual core with a new mobo and ddr2 ram for not much more
#15
If I had more budget then I would have considered those options. My components are not worth as much as bluestreaks, as my motherboard has a couple of issues (broken integrated network) and my processor is only a 3700+. With that in mind, and that I had a limit of about £50, the best option seemed to be to get the "top of the range" for this board- hence a 4400+ X2. In a year or two I will upgrade the lot, but this seems a decent way of getting some more use out of aged components. I hope so anyway!

Keep scouring ebay, if you look hard you may be able to snag a 4200+ toledo (2mb cache) for about that price if you're very lucky and the seller doesnt know what he has ... otherwise you're going to be hard pressed mate ... sorry to be the bearer of bad news..:(
#17
If you read a few posts back you'll notice that I managed to snag a 4400+ X2 for £55. Since these have extra cache and should overclock well, I'm pretty pleased with that.
