    The Biostar M7VIG with VIA KM266 Chipset accepts Socket A processors.
    I've got an AMD Duron 1.3GHz processor in there today.

    Does anyone think the Sempron 2800+ (Socket A) would work ok?

    I've read the Sempron 2800+ is an Athlon XP with less cache.

    Biostar archives show the Athlon XP as supported, but not the new

    The Sempron 2800+ operates at 2.0GHz, which is faster than the Athlon
    XP 2600+ (1.3GHz):,,30_118_11599_11604,00.html

    Is putting this faster CPU on this motherboard going to burn it up?

    Thank you for any advice,

    Yes, but not at max speed. Don't get a Sempron for this board (or any
    other socket A Sempron for that matter)
    See Sempron in link in sig line.
    This is not right, The athlon XP 2400+ has a default of 2.0GHz. The 2600+
    is faster.

    it's ver important you see Sempron in link below. And reading everything
    on the site wouldn't hurt.
