I have a defective computer with a busted cpu (Athlon, 'forgot the speed). I like to replace it with Athlon XP2000 or higher. My mother board is ECS K7VZA rev. 1.0. Will the Athlon XP2000 or higher work on my mobo. Help please.

K7VZA Supports 100/200 Mhz FSB. Maybe someone else knows which AMD processors run this buss speed.

ECS motherboards are crap anyway, you do much better replacing both.

The best you Athlon you can put on a VIA KT133 chipset is Athlon 1.4GHz (Thunderbird core) or Duron 1.3GHZ. The Athlon is about $125 OEM and the Duron about $45 OEM. And by the way I still sugest changing both because the processor burned out on that board, the board is probably toast also. The Athlon 1.4 runs on a 100MHz clock giving you 200MHz front side bus, which makes this very old core slow, plus aviability is low since AMD phased them out. For $125 you can get a Athlon XP 3200+ (BARTON core) 512K cache OEM that's a 200MHz clock giving you a 400MHz FSB.

Usually the board goes first :eek: Not the processor.
