THe the mobo only supports 200/266, that's probably as fast as it'll go. I assume the processor would work, but just at one of those slower bus speeds.

If im right that chip should be running at 333fsb? Isnt the 200 stuff going to mulitplied or you are taking these from memory speeds?

it should work just as long as the sockets fit. the bus speeds would change to the fastest your mobo can support (i think).

You'd Hope Probably would - but personally I would not recommend a Processor Upgrade without an equal Motherboard Upgrade, and the same the otherway.

Sorry to ask another question within this one, but why do they(or have they) made processors that only run at slower FSB's. I mean when I was getting my Athlon a while back, they had a 200MHz and a 266MHz model. If they both work, what was the point?!
