    Lets get right to the questions:

    Does the AMD Athlon XP 2600+ have an FSB of 266 MHz? Or is it just at 333 MHz?

    Would the AMD Athlon XP 2600+ work on my ASUS A7V266E (VIA KT266 chipset) motherboard?

    Also, would the new NV30 videocards work on my motherboard?

    XP2600+'s now come in both 266MHz and 333MHz FSB's. ;)

    I seriously doubt that you'd get either to work in your mobo though. :(

    Damn. Why won't it work?

    Should I just go for the AMD Athlon XP 2400+ then?

    I currently have an AMD Athlon XP 1900+ running on this motherboard. What is the difference between the 1900+ and the 2600+ besides speed?

    The board will support the 2600+ processor, but only if you have updated to the lateset BIOS revision (1011). Otherwise it will only support up to a 2200+ processor.

    Different cores - the 2600+ and onwards use 0.13 micron process.

    Where do I find the latest BIOS revision (1011)? And how do I go about updating/installing the new BIOS revision?
