A7M266-M OEM * OEM * Asus A7M266-M OEM For HP. Support AMD? Athlon / Duron
550MHz ~ 1GHz+ processors, 266MHz FSB and up to 1GB PC2100 / PC1600 DDR DRAM ,
AGP Pro/4X, UDMA 100, Built-in, Lan 10/100, Sound. Base on AMD 761chipset
Will support Athlon XP 2000/2100. I got mine from http://www.centrix-intl.com
Downside to it the miserable Phoenix/HP bios with ACPI....
