Re: better processor

Not sure which family of AMD Athlon you mean, probably just Athlon, not AthlonXP or other, but I do know that 2400+ isn't 2.00ghz, however, that aside, there are alot of processors supported by this motherboard, but in specific families.

This is a link to MSI's website and the CPU Compatibility list for this Motherboard. The AthlonXP 3000+ w/ 166/333 FSB is the Fastest this board will support, and as to where you can find it, there are numerous online stores that may still carry this. A few to check would be CDW (, TigerDirect (, NewEgg ( and ChiefValue ( to name a few. These are all sites that I have personally done business with to know they are legitimate companies.

Hope this helps!

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, (Click on -> Download <- all the way to the right of -> File:a7v266e-100.pdfVersion:--Release Date:--)

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.

Fastest CPU available for the K7N2G?

Look for socket A processors and ignore the XXXX+ and focus on the XXXXMHz rating (the MoBo's manufacturer's support site will give you the max processor your Board will handle). Since you mention that your MoBo is 4 to 5 years old, you'll probably better serve yourself to replace the MoBo and processor (you'll be able to upgrade to a much better/faster processor by upgrading both, and shouldn't cost that much more), and probably be happier with the result. You may want/need to upgrade your Power supply while you are at it too.
