basically s754 is meant towards mainstream while s939 is more towards highend. Nowadays they run about the same price so I'd recommend s939, with s939 you will have better ability to upgrade in the future and the dual channel memory helps in some programs by alot.

Not to mention the amazing overclockability of the 90nm Winchester core, unfortunately not available on Socket 754.
