Socket A/462 can take any AMD K7 family processor. The fastest you could get would be the Athlon XP 3200 I believe, but that could also include the Athlon 1400 and the Duron 1800. So it looks like you can make a significant upgrade of yhe processor.
Product Type: Motherboard
Form Factor: ATX
Width: 30.5 cm
Depth: 21.9 cm
Compatible Processors: Athlon, Duron, Athlon XP
Processor Socket: Socket A
Chipset Type: SiS745
Max Bus Speed: 266 MHz
BIOS Type: Award
Storage Controller: ATA-100
Unless you can upgrade your bios chip, you can only go to
(Socket 462) AMD® Athlon/Athlon XP/Duron processor up to 2000+MHz.
If you upgrade your bios to version 1.1
You can run the XP 2200+ , Socket A.
Your M/B support Socket 462 (also called Socket A) is a PGA socket designed for AMD K7 family
of processors. This socket can be used with AMD Athlon and Duron processors
ranging in speed from 600 MHz to 2200 MHz (3200+) and with bus frequences
ranging from 100 MHz to 200 MHz (400 MHz DDR)
Athlon (Socket A) (600 MHz - 1400 MHz) Athlon XP (1333 MHz - 2333 MHz, or 1500+ - 3200+) Athlon MP (1000 MHz - 2133 MHz) Duron (550 MHz - 1800 MHz) Sempron (socket A) (1500 MHz - 2200 MHz, or 2200+ - 3300+) Mobile Athlon 4 (850 MHz - 1400 MHz) Mobile Athlon XP-M (Socket A) (1200 MHz - 2200 MHz, or 1400+ - 3000+) Mobile Duron (650 MHz - 1200 MHz)
I Recommend to go for Athlon XP with good cooling fan. :)
