Any company still sell 939 processors?

Wondering if anyone knows of any company still selling 939 processors, my processor a 3500+ is struggling in some of the very latest games and I was looking for a dual core processor to tide me over.

I know you can get them on Ebay and I know it might be better to change motherboard/CPU but I have an expensive motherboard and OEM windows and would like to hold onto it for another year or so if I can.

I was looking for maybe a 4200 dual core or better still a faster one 4400 or 4600 perhaps.

Anyone any suggestions on any companies that still supply 939?

Thanks for that buteman but I had already tried google before I posted the question.
I could get a 4000+ single core really cheap and that might, considering the low cost, tide me over.
Just thought someone might know of a shop that still had some 939 dual core processors.

Dual core 4th one down.

I'm in a similar situ but mines socket 754 I think, AMD3400+

Thanks but the Pricerunner gives you details on Novatech, and Novatech haven't had this processor in stock for a very, very long time.

Pricerunner is a complete waste of time, it comes up with details for products that no longer exist for companies that no longer stock the item. No point in using it really.

Thanks for that I am Spartacus. Bit pricey though, the AM2 version is about £50 (from memory) and if its that much £160 I would be as well with a new board and processor thats AM2.

Maybe I'm hoping for too much. None of the suppliers I normally use have socket 939 dual cores in stock. I assume they are no longer made.

I can see I'll have to rethink things. £117 for a 4200 dual core socket 939 when I can get an AM2 one for peanuts, so far the only real viable option would be to get a 4000 single core, thats a reasonable price but its not much of a boost from a 3500.
For the same price as the 4200 dual core I can get a new board a 4400 AM2 processor with a gig of Ram from Novatech.
It looks like I'll have to wait till I have enough cash to build a new PC.

Anyone got an opinion on the AMD Athlon 64 4000+ San Diego (Socket 939).

Its meant to have 1mb L2 cache, its only £30. Anyone able to tell me if there would be any noticeable difference in speed.

Personally I rather doubt it but if anyone has upgraded their PC to this processor they might have a different opinion.
