I have an ASUS A7V Motherboard (http://www.asus.com/products/mb/socketa/a7v/overview.htm) which supports CPUs up to 1GHz and 200MHz FSB. I'm thinking of buying an AMD Duron 1.4 GHz (266 MHz bus) processor for this motherboard, but I'm not sure if it will work with it. I assume it is able to run at 1GHz, but I'm not sure if it is able to run at a lower FSB frequency.

Will it work?
