That isn't the model number of the motherboard.

It is on the motherboard usually towards the middle, on a GigaByte.

Starts with GA- and letter/numbers.

Usually in the middle of the motherboard, but may be on one edge, or in-between expansion slots, such as the white long PCI slots.

If you cannot find it, and the motherboard is operational, and the computer is internet ready, use Belarc Advisor for free,

http://www.belarc.com/free_download.html

When you find it use the Gigabyte CPU Support List,

http://www.gigabyte.com/support-downloads/support-downloads.aspx

[ I personally would use CPU-Z. MUCH more detailed info.

You need to know;

A) What processor socket is on the motherboard?

B) What motherboard chipset?

C) What BIOS version, and date, would help.

1) Processor socket:
No brainer. The processor has to fit in the processor socket, and the processor socket must support THAT processor.

[ Power, Signal, and Ground socket holes, must match up to the Power, Signal, and Ground, contact pins of the Processor.
Or other way around if the processor socket has the contact pins ]

2) Motherboard chipset:

I'm just guessing this isn't a motherboard that supports Intel Core i processors. Therefore the motherboard chipset has a Northbridge chip, and a Southbridge chip.

The Northbridge chip handles the faster capabilities of a computer.
It handles the Processor, Ram Memory, and HIGH-speed graphics.

[ AGP and PCI-Express are High-speed graphics technology.

A graphics card inserted into a PCI slot is Not high-speed graphics.
Integrated graphics is Not high-speed graphics either ]

The Southbridge chip handles the slower capabilities of a computer.

A) IDE devices
B) SATA devices
C) USB
D) Ethernet
E) Audio (Sound)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

CPU stands for Central Processing Unit. Another term used is Microprocessor, or simply Processor for short.

Let's use an example of an Intel motherboard chipset. An Intel 945GC,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Core_2_chipsets

Here we see the Processors supported in the chart. We also see the Front Side Bus support. (FSB)
It's 800MegaHertz. (800MHz)

You also see the Process Support. 65nm
(nm stands for NanoMeter. One billionth of a meter )

Let's say I wanted to use the best Processor, that this motherboard chipset will support.

That would be an Intel Core2 Duo that is based on the 65nm architecture, and has an 800MHz FSB.

I would then look at a chart for the processor that is currently being used, and see what it's Voltage Range is.

From the above information, I would know that if the processor I want to use, has the same voltage range.

Processor:
1) Fits the Processor socket

2) Has same Process Support. (nm architecture)

3) Has no more than an 800MHz FSB.

4) Falls within the same voltage range as the current processor being used ]

Awaiting motherboard model number. Post back in a Comment.

Had this system for awhile but never had any problems. Todays internet media etc. are getting to be too demanding for the athalon processor that came bundled with this MB. What is the strongest/fastest...


http://www.xiew.com/product-detail/msi/kt4v-l/

A) Processor Socket:
Socket A (Also known as Socket 462)

B) Motherboard Chipset:

VIA KT400A

VIA KT400A Northbridge chip,
VIA VT8235 Southbridge chip

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_VIA_chipsets#Slot_A_and_Socket_A

[ Info reading across from the subheading KT400A, shows one, of two newer Southbridge chipsets could have been used.
The VT8237, or the VT8251.

Neither one was apparently used, or the website's info is mistaken ]

The Northbridge chip (VIA KT400A) will support;

A) Processors with no more than a 266MegaHertz Front Side Bus. (266MHz FSB)
It will support Processors with either a 200MHz FSB, or 266MHz FSB.

(AMD processors are 'double-pumped'. The 100MHz, and 133MHz FSB support shown, is 'double-pumped' to 200MHz, and 266MHz )

AMD Athlon XP with a 266MHz FSB, that fits in a Socket A processor socket, IMHO is the best.

[ To digress;

Chip and Chipset are slang terms to represent I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_circuit

The Northbridge chip is so aptly named, for one, because it sits on the North side of the motherboard. Looking at the motherboard as a map, the Processor sits due 'North'.
The white long PCI slots sit due 'South'.

{In the illustration of the MSI KT4V motherboard above in FixYa, turn the motherboard to the Left }

The Northbridge chip and the Southbridge chip is the Motherboard Chipset.

The Northbridge chip handles the faster capabilities of the computer.
The Southbridge chip handles the slower capabilities of the computer.

The Northbridge chip handles the Processor, Ram Memory, and High-speed graphics.

A graphics card inserted into a PCI slot is Not high-speed graphics.
Neither is Integrated Graphics.
{Integrated Graphics is also known as OnBoard graphics. ON the motherBOARD.
The GPU is soldered to the motherboard, not on a removable graphics card}

Motherboard Diagram, (That is for the technology used for the MSI KT4V motherboard.
Does not apply to motherboards supporting the Intel Core i3, i5, i7, and i9 processors),

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

The Northbridge chip is the motherboard chip to be concerned with, when deciding what Processors the motherboard will support.

Finding an AMD Athlon XP that fits in a Socket A processor socket, and has a maximum FSB of 266MegaHertz, is a wee tough.

In my recent search I have seen some advertised on Ebay. DO NOT know anything about them.
Here is an AMD Athlon MP 2000+,

http://www.weirdstuff.com/cgi-bin/item/13161

,that operates at a maximum of 1.67GigaHertz, and uses a 266MHz FSB.

Not advertising for the above website either, but I have dealt with them to great satisfaction.

K7SV266AD Can I use 266Mhz athalon processor with this board, book says 100/133 FSB. If so what processors? Thanks


The Syntax K7SV266AD motherboard uses a VIA motherboard chipset.

It uses a VIA KT266A for the Northbridge, and a VIA VT8235 for the Southbridge.

About the motherboard chipset;

Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_circuit

The Northbridge chip handles the faster capabilities of the computer.
It handles the Processor, Ram Memory, and High-speed graphics.

High-speed graphics is AGP or PCI-Express

A graphics card inserted into a PCI slot is Not high-speed graphics.
Neither is Integrated Graphics.

(Integrated Graphics is also referred to as OnBoard graphics.
ON the motherBOARD. The graphics chipset is soldered directly to the motherboard, and not to a graphics adapter card. {Graphics card}

The graphics chipset is a GPU.
Graphics Processing Unit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPU

The Southbridge chip handles the slower capabilities of the computer.
It handles the IDE, and SATA capabilities of the computer.
It also handles the USB ports, Ethernet, and Audio, plus anything connected to a PCI slot, and Integrated Graphics, to list a few examples.

Motherboard Diagram,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

[For further information you may wish to search on Wikipedia,
A) Northbridge (computing)
B) Southbridge (computing)
C) Bus
D) PCI Local Bus
E) AGP (Accelerated Graphics Port)
F) PCI Express
G) Front Side Bus ]

Looking at the motherboard with the Processor to the top, and Ram Memory to the right, the VIA KT266A northbridge chip is below the Processor.
The aluminum finned Heatsink covers it.

The VIA VT8235 southbridge chip is down towards the lower right corner.

Looking at the specs for the VIA KT266A chip we can see,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_VIA_chipsets#Slot_A_and_Socket_A

1) It supports either DDR Sdram ram memory at 200MegaHertz, or 266MHz.
PC-1600 or PC-2100, respectively.
(DDR Sdram is clocked twice. Therefore the 133MHz Front Side Bus {FSB} support will handle 266MHz ram memory)

2) The Maximum ram memory it will support is 4GB. If you have the motherboard manual, you will know what the maximum amount of Ram Memory is, that the motherboard will support.

3) Will support Processors with either a 100MHz, or 133MHz FSB. (Front Side Bus)
AMD processors are 'Double-pumped'.
The VIA VT266A chip will handle AMD processors with up to a 266MHz FSB.

It will handle AMD Athlon, or AthlonXP, or Duron processors, with a maximum FSB of 266MHz.

http://www.via.com.tw/en/products/chipsets/legacy/kt266a/

The best processor will be an AMD AthlonXP with a 266MHz FSB, that fits in a Socket A (Socket 462) processor socket.

Watch the Voltage used. Look up the AMD processor you have installed now, and see what voltage range it uses. The new processor must use voltage in this range also.

Is the MSI-K9N SLI-Platinum (MS-7250) capable of running an HD capable video card?


I would recommend upgrading your RAM to 2GB or even 4GB before investing into HD video card. It might be jerky. Your processor should be ok for it as it is.

Motherboard capable of running 533 fsb, running at 133


You would have to run the 533 FSB at times 5 or 6 to get 2.4GHZ.
And if you did you probably would not see any increase in speed

I have AMD Athlon XP 2200+ m7vit bravo m-b


All current 333 MHz capable Socket A chipsets (VIA KT333, KT400, nVIDIA nForce2, SiS 746FX) should be compatible with Barton based processors although you may need to flash the BIOS for the processor to recognized properly
your board has a 333mhz front side bus so should be capable of running them
You must ensure that the cpu is for 333 mhz and not more and that it fits socket A which your board is

WHICH MOTHER BOARD SUPPORT em64T INTEL ?


All major motherboard manufacturers offer this support on most boards. The em64T indicates the processor is capable of running 64-bit operating systems and software. Do you already have a processor and if so what model is the processor? Based on the processor model you'll need to select a motherboard that has the correct socket type and bus speeds.
