    No, the K7T266 has it's model number as MS-6380 and the MS-6330 is the K7T Turbo.

    IMO, you can replace them with each other just fine, since both will support your CPU and RAM and all your other stuff. They're different motherboards, but have almost the same basic features. The only problem will be that you'll have to re-install Windows again, since after a change in the motherboard it'll mess up the HAL in the OS and you'd get BSODs if you try to run without re-installing Windows.
