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.

    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.
