I keep hearing that 939 is better because it can support dual core but what exactly makes socket 939 better than 754?

Socket 754 is on its way out. With Socket 939, you'll still have a few years of upgradeability.

And s939 CPUs and Mobos aren't that much more expensive nowadays anyway.

But isn't 939 older than 754? I think s939 has been around since the AMD Opteron which was more than two years ago...
But I don't really know how old s754 is...

No, 754 is slightly older.

what's the difference between s754 and socket a?
what kind of processors does s754 accept?

S754 is a single channel socket for older athlon 64 processors. At that time you had 2 choices

#1. Go with an athlon 64 and get a S754 board and get stuck with single channel ram (at that time dual channel did little to boost speed on the athlon's anyway).

#2. Go with a Athlon FX and get a S940 motherboard (then you get dual channel ram and it's roughly 3% boost in speed).

Today Amd runs both processors on the same socket (s939) and with dual channel ram. Only 2 things make the FX better.

#1. More cache
#2. Unlocked multiplier

As for socket A it's the old socket that the athlon / Athlon XP / Durron used. It came out after slot A and before s754 .

If you need to know anything about the athlon just ask me (I'v been running them from day one).
