Umm.. I believe that motherboard uses the old 'Slot-A' for connecting the processor, and IIRC the thunderbird was never made in that form, only for socket A. It's possible that someone manufactures an adapter, but you'd probably be better off buying a new mobo and an athlon XP or Duron.

I believe most Slot-A boards didn't support Thunderbirds, but since a few did, your best chance to find out is to look at MSI's website.
