If your motherboard can support it, nothing bad. Heck, that would be a double bonus if you can find a proc that has 800Mhz and is faster.

If the motherboard you have does not support 800Mhz, idk what will happen. THe board might down clock the proc to make it compatible, or it might not work at all. Maybe someone else can fill us in here on that.

Your motherboard is socket 478, and it says it can go from 1.7GHz to 2.8GHz. So the one i posted is the best you can get, because its 2.8GHz. If you would get a 3.0GHz one then it would probably downclock to 2.8. So thered be no point in getting 3.0.
