I need a new motherboard for one of my computers but i'm not 100% sure if it will work with my processor.The processor that i have is a AMD Thunderbird socket a 200 FSB not the 266 fsb! and i use pc133 ram

these are the motherboards i was interested in:

ABIT KT7A Athlon Socket A 200/266 FSB Mainboard
this what the specification i was not sure about
CPU
1. Supports AMD-K7 Duron 600MHZ-850MHZ or future 200MHz FSB Socket A Processors
2. Supports AMD-K7 Athlon 700MHZ-1.2GHZ or 200/266MHz FSB Socket A Processors
3. Supports 200/266 MHz Alpha EV6 bus for the AMD Athlon & Duron Processors

i notice it said duron 650mhz or future and i thought the thunderbirds had the same voltage as them? Also it says AMD k7 athlon but only 266 FSB and i have a thunderbird 1.3 200 FSB

It should work fine with your cpu. The bios upgrade for your cpu support dates back to July 2001, so you may have to flash the bios. If you need instructions, I will send them to you.
