    According to msi's website, specifically;

    This motherboard supports athlon processors up to XP2000. I have just
    installed an athlon XP1800
    and D-LED is giving me four red leds. The machine boots/runs fine when
    fitted with a 750MHz Duron.
    I have updated the bios to version 1.9 but still no dice. Does/should this
    version of this board (1.0 not 1.0A)
    run an athlon XP? The processor is OK, I reinstalled it in its existing
    machine to post this message. TIA


    300W codegen PSU
    512MB crucial memory as two 256MB modules slot 1+2 ( compatible with the
    board according to http://www.crucial.com )
    Athlon XP1800 (hopefully!)
    2 X 40GB seagate barracudas.

    Yeah I have the Pro 2 RU version of the board, so only a few revisions later
    really, and I am running an XP 2100+ Palomino version. Apparently it is as
    fast as the board can go... My next step will be a MB upgrade... Athlon 64
    of some sort i guess... Unless I can afford those Dual Opterons ;-)
