A7V266E/AA MB CPU
The Ol' Asus A7V266-E?
1.The fastest Front Side Bus setting is 266MHz
2.Uses Socket 462 AMD processors
3.Uses Athlon, Athlon XP, and Duron AMD processors.
I would stick with an AMD Athlon XP. Fastest one? Hmmm, I believe that would be the AMD Athlon XP 2600+
The one that operates at 2133MHz with a FSB of 266MHz. Part number AXDA2600DKV3C
Here is the Motherboard Manual for your Asus A7V266-E, (It's a PDF file download. Let it download all the way before looking through it)
If the above direct link does not work for you, then go here,

Go to Page 19, Item 2. NO POWER connected to computer, make sure the SYSCLK (System Clock) DIP switches are set to 133MHz.
1, 2, 3, and 4 are set to the OFF position for 133MHz.
All you will see is the ON. The switches go to the opposite side as shown in Item 2.
I'm sure they are set there however, as your 1900+ you have in right now, uses a 266MHz FSB.
I should explain.
AMD processors are Double-Pumped. Therefore the 133MHz setting will become 266MHz for the processor. (Intel processors are Quad-Pumped.
They are both the same Core, (Thoroughbred A/B, Model 8, 130nm), so a BIOS update shouldn't be necessary.
