How can I tell what the maximum FSB I can reach on my mobo is? I provided some info from an Everest report if that helps. Also can anyone tell me how much RAM my mobo supports from the info provided? THANKS MUCH! :)

Everest tells me that my BIOS is: Phoenix-Award BIOS v6.00PG, that my North Bridge Chipset is: VIA VT8751(A) ProSavageDDR P4M266(A), that my South Bridge Chipset is: VIA VT8233(A), that my Motherboard ID is: 06/13/2002-P4M266-8233-6A6LWP8HC-00, that my processor is a: Celeron Willamette-128 478 pin uPGA, and that my current FSB is set to: 400MHz

You need to find the actual make/model of the motherboard, then you can look up the specs. See if Speccy comes up with the model:

Pay attention during the installation & uncheck the boxes for the Google software.

Is there any other way of finding out the make and model of my motherboard? I have tried 4 different softwares that identify your hardware and none of them have ever been able to tell me anything beyond the Chipset Manufacturer. It has been a pain trying to figure out what is compatible with my board :(

How about opening the case & getting the model number off the board? Based on the BIOS ID, I'm guessing it's an AZZA. Maybe this one:

Where would I look on the board? I don't have to take it out of the computer do I?

Did you click on the links I provided? Did you look at the pictures of the motherboard? The model number is clearly visible between the CPU socket & memory slots. Try clicking on ths one:

Yep thats the board, I checked it out. Thank you so much! I never thought I would figure this out :) Unfortunately it's exactly what I feared :( This board only supports a 400MHz FSB. That just wont cut it, so I'm going to buy a new one. Found a nice intel one with an 800MHz FSB. Once again Thank You very much!
