I'm not totally new to OC'ing, but there is more that I don't know than I do know. I'm looking to upgrade my Athlon XP 2600+ 266MHz FSB, and I'm looking to do it with a tight budget. So far I've found an Athlon XP 2800+ Barton 333MHz FSB, which according to the specs, the stock speed is the same as my current OC'ed speed. How much better is the 2800+ with a 333MHz FSB than the 2600+ with a 266MHz FSB?

Yeah that's the right one, u may be losing some initial clock speed but you end overclock should be better since you're using an "I" XP-M.

Think it'll go near 2.5 GHz?

I found a 2800+ I-stepping, also

Go with that 2400 I and oc the livin' hell out it, you may be surprised at the speeds you see jump out
Just make sure your cooling isn't sub par and you have a good supporting setup around it and you're ready for take off bro.
