Socket A MB CPU compatability

  Frog 2001 06:07 16 Nov 2005

I have a Abit KT7A-raid MB w/ a dead CPU, I belive the best CPU (at least at the time) was a Athlon 1700+. Current prices for faster CPU's are cheaper than a replacement. Can I use a faster socket A CPU and run it (at a slower speed) Ex, Sempron 333FSB in a 266FSB board? If not, why?
