Looks like its max FSB is 333Mhz. The quickest chip you're likely to get in that is a Barton-core XP3000. Some XP3200s were made in 333FSB (2.083Ghz) but they were rare and mainly supplied to system integrators.

If you're doing a proper upgrade soon, personally I'd wait. Those higher-end Athlon XPs still tend to carry a silly price premium.
