Can I upgrade a Biostar M7MIA with 1.2mhz firebird?

I checked the Athlon website and it says I can only go to 1.4mhz max
with the Biostar M7MIA 1.x board (Award BIOS). I currently have 1.2mhz
AMD 761 rev 2 chipset.

Is that true or can I use a higher rated cpu?

If so, which ones are compatible?

If not, can I overclock -how and how high?

I would like to get the max mhz possible since I will be doing a lot of
video editing and capture.

Thanks for your help.

All of them.

Multiplier x FSb = cpu speed.

The AMD 761 supports a 133MHz FSB. 24x133.34 = 3200MHz. That's the top
speed you can get without overclocking the FSB. There are currently no AND
Athlon cpu's that run over 2250MHz (unless overclocked). See link below.
I'd probably suggest a 2400+ for your board.
