Asus A7M266 fastest chip?

Hi everyone.
Last year I bought an Asus A7M266 because I read a review here at the time that said it was the fastest single processor athlon board availble. At the time I thought I needed a fast system for video work. But it turns out I never built the second system and have had the motherboard and a 256MB chip of Crucial 266mhz SDRAM sitting around for over a year.

Well I'm sick of looking at it. Plus being that I paid $200 for it a year ago I want to build it into a second system I can use for the 3d work I'm getting into now.

I realize this is an older motherboard now and I haven't kept up on everything. I was just wondering if anyone could tell me what is the fastest AMD chip I can put on this board? That is without overclocking it or messing with it in any unnatural way. I'm not experienced with that kind of stuff.

Any speed you want. With the latest BIOS it should support the T-breds.

Thanks. As I said though I'm not very experienced with this kind of stuff. Where would I get the latest bios and how would I install it?
