Hmm let me guess you got a board from perhaps turbo pc? LOL, yes this chip will run on your board you have coming and run rather nicely I may add. I have one myself ( I have 4 computers) Same board with a slot a t-bird 750 mhz running at 900 rock solid stable. I few things I might add. the irongate chipset only supports pc-100 SDRAM. Pc-133 will run fine in it but at 100 mhz. So more importantly than getting pc-133 make sure you get cas2. Also, avoid the geforce cards with this board, they have a small issue and will only run at agp 1x. Although this hardly affects performance, a much a better choice for this board is the ati radeon. There is an updated bios also for this board so be sure to download it. If you want to have some fun get yourself a GFD and overclock that puppy, one thing nice abou the slot birds is you can still use the gfd's
I have less than 100 bucks in my board and cpu ( plus 15 for the gfd) and I get a cpumark99 score of 82.....not to shabby and hey...its not VIA!
A little bit of knowledge is a dangerous thing!
