    According to what they sell at newegg it would be an XP2400+ with a 266MHz FSB.
    266 is as fast as this board will handle as far as I know. Too bad it won't do
    333 or we could put Barton cores into it.

    Well if you go "by the book" the fastest processor you can upgrade is
    a Athlon XP2600+ with a 266FSB, but it would be very hard to find one
    of those. So an XP2400+ is the fastest if you go "by the book".
    However if you decide to take a risk, and know some things about
    overclocking e.t.c you can put any Athlon up to 3Ghz and from the bios
    settings put FSB clock at 165MHZ(x2=330mhz so as i said you can put
    even a Athlon XP [email protected] with a small loss in speed,about 1%),
    and use some other tricks to normalize the pci clock and agp clock
    (cause these two are always a fraction of FSB), and also your memories
    should be rated PC2700(333mhz) or higher .
