I’ve got an old socket A mother board with a XP1700 processor. I want to upgrade the processor to the XP 3000 or 3200. Question is will the mobo run it? See board specs below.

1. Support DDR266 memory
2. ATX form factor

1. Socket A for AMD Athlon™/AMD Athlon™XP/Duron™ 200/266MHz FSB processors
2. Supports 500MHz ~ 2000+ CPU and faster
3. FSB adjustable by BIOS up to 161MHz(no guarantee)
4. Supports CPU multiplier 5.0/5.5/.../12.5
5. CPU voltage overclockable by adding 5%, 10% CPU voltage

1. VIA KT266A system controller north bridge
2. VIA VT8233A V-Link south bridge
3. AC97 Codec

Appreciate any input ( and no, I can't afford a new comp, Har!)

Hi Toonfreaky and welcome to gtg.

Here is a link to all the processors that the Gigabyte GA-7VTXE+ will support


The fastest processor this board will support is a 2600+

I hope this helps.
