  1. Hey guys this is my mobo and I know its old. http://usa.asus.com/mb/socketa/a7a266/overview.htm# Now I know this info is old because I flashed my bios to 1012 the latest. It tells me that I can now put up to a Athlon XP 2600+(266FSB)(Model 8)(Thoroughbred) in it. So thats all fine and well but does anyone know what kind of memory I can put in it now or if a new bios would upgarde that to? I have one measly stick of 256 pc 2100 ddr sdram and Id like to know if I can put something better in now I cant seem to find anything on the asus site thanks for all the help in advanced.:)
    Oh and perhaps updated drivers for my agp slot

    you're stuck with pc2100. sorry. you could probably benefit from another 256 or 512mb, though.

    as for chipset drivers, get them from ALi. select "M1647" as your northbridge and "M1535D+" as your southbridge.
