I have an old Abit KG7-Lite mobo with AMD 761/VIA 686B chipsets.

Has anyone gotten this board, or any other board with the AMD 761 chipset to work with a Sempron CPU?

The 761 was the first socket A DDR memory chipset, and had a max FSB of 133Mhz (266DDR). Socket A Semprons work with a FSB of 166Mhz (333DDR). It may work, it may not, but if it does, it will be underclocked.

I guess I don't have anything to loose, except if I go buy a Sempron CPU and it doesn't work, then I'll be stuck with an old board AND and old socketA CPU.
