I just purchased a MSI KT3 Ultra-ARU motherboard, haven't fetched it from the post office yet, but i wonder if it is capable of meeting a AMD XP2200+ (Thouroughbred) processor without flashing its BIOS?

Hope U can help....

Yes but if it doesn't support the "thoroughbred" processor - i'm screwed when installing.....
