That's a Barton 2600+, the FSB should be set to 166MHz in order for it to run properly. It should run at 1.917GHz and, being a Barton, it has 512KB of L2 cache.

You can use PC3200 with it, yes. PC3200 is spec'd to run at up to 200MHz (400MHz effective), and you'll be running it at 166MHz (333MHz effective), so no problems there.

DEC Pentium X2 5200+ w/ HyperCache (Ezra core)
Asus M7NCD-MAX3 (OPTi Vendetta 82C760)
6x Generic 32MB PC2700 RDRAM (50ns SIMMs)
2x nVidia Millennium X1800 Duo (SLI mode)
12x (daisy-chained) Quantum Medalist 180GXP (w/ separate SCSI-1 adapter)
