Hi guys, my bro's mobo died just recently, so i was looking for some replacement since its quite old and cant find that type mobo's on stores.

The dead motherboard is a : Asus P5S800-VM
-Chipset SiS661FX
-Compatible Processors Intel Pentium 4, Intel Celeron D
-Front Side Bus Speed 800 MHz

Thinking of getting the Foxconn 661GX7MI-S since its the only one i could find online (for where iam).
Processor: Socket LGA775 Intel Pentium 4 Prescott processors

Chipset: SiS 661GX + 964

Front Side Bus: 533 MHz

Memory: Max. 2GB Single Channel 400MHz / 333MHz / 266MHz DDR SDRAM


Ok. My question is that since the ASUS(dead) mobo had 800MHz and the Foxconn has 533MHz, will it still work with my Pentium 4 3.0GHz 800MHz FSB? Will it slow anything down? such as will the 533mhz on the mobo cause the CPU to show something lower than the 3.0GHz?

Any help will be appreciated. I can provide more details if required.

Its either replace the mobo, or just upgrade the system since its pretty old. :D 

Thanks.

It will work, and you should be able to adjust the BIOS settings to get 3.0GHz and to get your RAM running at its designed speed too. You can download the Foxconn manual here. I checked the BIOS settings section, but it has limited info - you'll have to check the detailed settings after you get the system running.
