    thank you..i know its max from msi says 266  2600+  but it seems a 3000 or 2800+ will run 333 mhtz..if you change the bios setting to 166 ...but..i also wonder how much faster is a 2800 or 3000+ 333  then the 2600+ 266 chip?  anyone know?

    nop. 3000+ at 166FSB(333) is the fastest one from thease 3 choices. Due to bigger FSB speed 166 vs 133 as other 2 CPUs and twice bigger Secondary level Cache (512KB) His code name is Barton.

  • Is your motherboard a KT3 Ultra 2 or a KT3 Ultra?  The version 5.7 bios only works with the KT3 Ultra 2.
    If it is an KT3 Ultra 2, then you can use an XP-3000 with 333fsb in it if you manually set the fsb speed to 166.  The difference in performance between the 2600 with 266fsb and the 3000 with 333fsb is noticable if you play games or do folding with your computer but I don't know what percentage it is.
