K7T PRO Version 1 Motherboard, KT133 & AMD

    New to this group, so apologies if you have seen this question before..

    I have an MSI mainboard (K7T Pro), the BIOS allows selection of 66, 100 or
    133 FSB speed. I am looking to upgrade my processor which is an AMD Duron
    850 MHz.

    All advertised AMD CPU's appear to be 233MHz FSB as minimum, does this mean
    my motherboard will not support this FSB? If so what is my best processor
    upgrade option?

    Thanks in advance. Chris.

    Assuming this has the KT133 (non A) chipset, the 133MHz won't work. Bug in
    chipset.

    Actually, all AMD K7 cpu's are spec'd to run on a FSB as slow as 50MHz
    and a max of 200MHz for 400FSB models. See link below for the info you
    need. If you still have questions, ask.
