Default Motherboard choice...socket 754 or socket 939?

I am buying components to build my first computer.

Can not make a decision about the Athlon 64 bit compatible mobos and need help.

Between socket 754 or socket 939.

Which one?...I understand socket 939 is more advanced...but do that translates into better performance?

yes, don't take a 754 it has not future.
price is almost the same.
i guess an A64 3000+ is the most prize/performance related
and msi k8n neo2 for mobo.

watercooling, chilled water,direct phase change, cascade, custom modding

Think 754 will be like the 423 socket
forget it and buy a 939
