    If it is an amd xp2600 that you got then that's about right.......I think. 2.0 ghz.

    2400 is 2 GHz
    2133 MHz would be my guess.

    Goodie. I just assumed the CPU-speed increased by 66 MHz / 100+ increment. ;>

    As far as I know, the 2500xp is the last to use a 266 fsb, therefore the 2600xp would have to be set at 166mhz to be a 333 fsb. That will most likely have it running at its proper speed.
