I'm replacing my old motherboard since I damaged it and need some help making sure that the new motherboard I purchase is compatible with my processor. I'm pretty sure the ones that I've been looking at are compatible, but I'd like to be certain before I buy it. I'll post the link for my old motherboard's specs and the one i'm thinking about buying to replace it for now.

OLD MOTHERBOARD: http://www.asrock.co...=4CoreDX90-VSTA

NEW MOTHERBOARD: http://www.shopping....rial-ATA-Retail

Pentium 4 Processor 2.66 // Nvidia 9500 GT 1GB DDR2 // 400w power supply //
RAM DDR400 1.5GB // Dual Boot Windows XP / Vista

The problem im having is I now longer have my processor's box so I'm trying to make sure that everything will work correctly. For instance, I'm not sure what my cpu's bus speed is, and since I cant turn my computer on anymore I dont know how to find out. I know my old motherboard supported 1066/800/533 so I'm not sure which of the 3 it is, but if I had to guess id say 533. However thats what worries me, because the new motherboards that ive been looking at all say fsb 800, so If anyone can give
me some advice on that issue or even recommend some motherboards that would work for me id appreciate it.
