I think an XP2600+/266 MHz version should go, these are difficult to find. These older motherboards can have failing capacitors, you might want to check how they look, see if any bulging or leaking.

Actually the MSI K7T Turbo2 boards were prone to failing as they're fitted with G-Luxon & Teapo capacitors, usually the G-Luxons went first but Teapos can fail with no outward indication


Best place to find out processor support for this board would beHERE (when the servers come back up after their maintenance is finished)

If it's a KT133a chipset, a 133/266fsb Tbred xp2600 may go, but you wouldn't notice the difference after an xp2400. Also most of the xp2600s you see for sale are 166/333 fsb modeles which wouldn't run at full speed on that board. 133/266 barton cpus do exist but I doubt the board would support bartons. Save your money and get a new system. Old SDRAM will never give good performance, but you could try looking for some cheap memory modules and max out the memory capacity of the board if you really want to keep it.
