Okay here's the problem.

The K7VZA is a 200 FSB, socket 462 motherboard (which I have been told is the same as a Socket A, but don't know for sure).

I recently flashed the BIOS to ver 3.7. Before the BIOS flash, I believe that the max processor recognized was an Athlon 1300. After the flash, the AMD site said that it should recognize Athlon XP 2600+.

So here's my question.....

If I put in say an Athlon XP 1800, will it actually work? The 1600 has a FSB of 200/266, and is socket A. Not to mention that the processor speed is not normally recognized (but the BIOS flash said that it should allow more powerful ones now).

I just don't want to buy one and then find out it won't work...

Since your board has a maximum fsb of 266, the fastest processor you can use is a AMD XP2400+ or a 2600+(266MHz fsb version).
Because that version of the 2600+ is very hard to find(almost all of them are 333Mhz fsb), i'd say a xp2400+ is the maximum.
