I've recently thought about doing an upgrade or two to my rig, and have recently found an Athlon XP 2400 cpu to start the ball rolling. I was looking around on newegg for socket a motherboards, and was wondering how I could determine what speeds of processors will work in the board? I didn't notice anything that stood out to me, so I figure it's there but I just don't know it...

Could anyone help me out with this?

The CPU you've got runs @ 2.0 GHz, but the number you should be worried about the fir Front Side Bus (FSB). The 2400 runs @ 266 MHz, and any mobo you pick must support this speed.

Ya gotta love the price on this one: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16813185010

You could get an AMD 64 3000+ bundled in with a mobo at tigerdirect for only 159.99 after rebate!

I have a MSI k7n2 delta 2 and it will support up to a Amd 3200 cpu.
