    Here is a link to your board. Does that look like your board? I cant be sure if it is because there might be different makes of your same board.

    That site says it only supports up to 2200.

    Here is a BIOS update that will allow it to support AMD 2600XP.
    [SIZE=1]AMD 4200 X2 @ 2.65Ghz, ASRock 939-VSTA
    1.75GB PC3200, 2 X 160GB Seagate w/ 8MB Buffer

    That bios version does not support XP3000+ (but it does support XP2600+). For XP3000+ support you need version 5.7 which is available here.

    Edit: you beat me to it.
