For this barebone

In the description
>> the Terminator A7VT supports Athlon XP / Sempron 3000+<<

in the specifications
>>CPU Support       AMD Athlon XP 3000+ (Thoroughbred / Barton)
                           AMD Sempron (FSB333 only)<<

Does this mean I cannot put an xp2500/2600, or not?

Thank you

Terminator A7VT supports 333MHz FSB AMD Athlon XP / Sempron 3000+ (2.25GHz)
Chipset       VIA KM266 PRO / VT8235CE

That is it - 333MHz FSB is maximum. BTW, there is Sempron 2500+/2600+ with FSB333, so check AthlonXP FSB, it may suit.
