hey

i bought a athlon xp 2600 333mhz for my mobo the other day and i didn't realise that my mobo only runs at 133mhz meaning that i should have brought a 266mhz model.

can i still use the 333mhz processor in my mobo? or will it be completely incompatible?

any help would be great

my mobo is an asus A7N266-VM

thanks

me

oh right

so it wouldn't cause any damage to my comp or the cpu?

and would it not work as good as a 266mhz if i got that?

thanks

It won't hurt it unless the FSB is fore some reason locked. The biggest downside is you won't be getting your money's worth.
