Will old slow Duron work? (SY-K7VME)

    I am replacing a burnt-out MB on my son's PC with a Soyo SY-K7VME,
    since it was cheap ($0 after rebate) and my Dragon Plus is still
    running well.

    I am wondering whether his Duron 800 from his previous MB will work
    (until he needs a faster CPU)?

    The MB is a Via KM400 chipset. The website indicates a range of CPU
    speeds, but it seems to me that the low end is simply the slowest that
    was being sold when the product document was being written.

    It states: " Duron: 1.3GHz - 1.8 GHz ", but - for example - AFAIK,
    there is no difference between the 1.0 and the 1.3 other than clock
    speed (multiplier).
