Default New to AMD

I fairly know my way around computer but all i have had is intel. I have this computer that a friend gave to me, runs slow due to low RAM,I have that taken care of. What i need help with is CPU upgrade.

Here is what i have

Mobo--ECS M810DLU
CPU --Duron Morgan 1.2GHZ
RAM -- 256MB (ugrading to 1GB)
OS --XP Pro

What I would like to know is what is the fastest CPU i could put in this mobo
From my understanding the fastest CPU would be Athlon XP 2600+ (AXDA2600DKV3C) since the mobo can only handle 266 FSB. AM I RIGHT????


This computer is for my nephew( 5 years old), basic internet, educational games etc....


Thanks in advance

Yeah, i looks like a 2600+ is the max you can do, but you might want to check ECS's site for a BIOS flash to allow a higher fsb. It isn't unheard of.
