    I have an MSI K7T266 Pro2 motherboard gathering dust after upgrading my system. I'd like to build a second PC from the leftovers. What's the fastest AMD XP cpu that I can put into this board? It looks like anything after XP2400+ has 333 FSB and this board can only handle 266. Another question, I notice the AMD XP Mobile 2500 has a 512 cache and a 266 fsb. Can that mobile cpu go into the MSI socket A board?

    Here's the leftovers:
    MSI 6380 mobo
    WD 40 gig HD
    2x 256mb pc2700 generic RAM
    ATI radeon 7500

    I will need to buy:
    case and PSU
    new monitor
    wireless NIC Card.

    Any suggestions or answers?
