The acorp 7KMA1 uses the VIA KM133 chipset which supports only a 100MHz FSB, while the new 'Applebred'-Durons(the 1600 you want is an 'Applebred' run a 133MHz FSB - so no, they won't work together.

If you're buying a new mobo, i would strongly recommend against buying such an outdated board anyways.
If you need integrated video, i would recommend a Nvidia NForce2 IGP(very nice) or VIA KM400(not as fast/good as the NForce, but cheaper)-based mobo.

There are alot of mobos with the aforementioned chipsets, for example the MSI K7N2G-L(NForce2 IGP) or Asus A7V8X-MX(VIA KM400).
