  266 FSB Athon XP barton 2800+ CPU into Asus A7N266-VM ? 
 Date Written

I am thinking about upgrading my motherboard. I have been looking at the specs of
Athon XP barton CPU's and the barton 266 FSB looks like I could put one into the
Asus A7N266-VM.

Would this work ?
Or would I have to do something akin to overclocking to get this to work.
Not really overcloaking since I would run it at specs.

Has anyone done this ? I don't mean the mobile barton ; but desktop barton.

Should work fine as long as it's a socket A chip. What CPU do you have at the moment?
