    Yes, the K7S5a MB, when it works, will handle any XP processor that runs at
    a FSB of 133Mhz. (XPs that are advertised to run at 266MHz only use a FSB or

    Just built a system with this board for a friend and the box say's upto a
    2600XP T/Bred 266fsb model though, if your board is an older one you may
    need a bios upgrade.

    Yes, if you really want to. They handle any Athlon that can be run at
    133Mhz FSB. Which is basically anything these days. The board does have a
    few known issues, but was blazingly fast for its generation. See the above
    thread for a discussion of the known CMOS/BIOS fault. And yes, you might
    need to update the BIOS if you have an earlier revision, depending on which
    XP you put in.
