I have a spare motherboard (Magic-Pro MP-7VIP-AX2) that accepts Athlon or Duron processor and FSB of 266 MHz (No DDR memory). I am looking for a low-cost CPU for the board to setup my second desktop PC. What models are available to me? Can I use Sempron or just Duron given that Athlon (Thunderbird) is already out of the market?

Semprons are for 166/333MHz FSB, do not bother with them for that motherboard.

Anyway, see if you can figure out which of these two motherboards you have:

http://www.magic-pro.com/produ...t462...2/7vipax2_2.htm' ">http://www.magic-pro.com/produ...ocket462/7vipax2_2.htm

The second one should support Athlon XPs, whereas the first one probably doesn't. If you've got the second motherboard, then an Athlon XP 2400+ would probably be the best CPU for it. A 1.3GHz Duron or 1GHz+ Athlon Thunderbird for the first.

I wonder if this Magic-Pro is an alias for PCChips. Their website is full of flash animations and uncompressed images.

They seem to be rebadging someone's motherboards, although I haven't been able to match any with PCCHIPS yet. There sure are a bunch of them. Maybe they buy from more than one manufacturer.

One of their motherboards is a Soltek. See this review.' ">http://www.pcstats.com/articleview.cfm?articleID=1405
