i am looking for a new motherboard, and am confused as to what size processor mb's take as they never seem to tell you, all the info I get from the manufacturers pages are:
Socket A
Supports AMD Duron, Athlon & XP CPU (very good but what size processor)
266MHz Front Side Bus
with double data rate
Can use either DDR RAM or SDRAM
Supports ATA133
PC Health Monitoring
On-board Audio
5 x PCI Slots
1 x 4xAGP Slot

could someone please tell me how you tell how fast a processor a motherboard will take

normally, if it says it can take an Athlon XP, then it should be able to use any Athlon XP CPU. I've just bought a new motherboard from dabs.com, and when I asked for info, it was all there as well including what RAM it could use, and all the rest.

This is my motherboard and CPU

ECS K7S8A motherboard supports 333 DDR ram and XP CPU's

CPU 1600+xp now running at 1900+xp just with a strait CoolerMaster fan no extra cooling temps CPU 41c on load SYS 27c

I do not know wether you will be able to now get the 1600+xp but it is one of the best for overclocking my comp is a very stable system I just have 256DDR 2100 ram Bought from click here
