    Will 2700 mem work with 3200

    I currently have a 512mb 2700 DDR in my box. I am going to purchase a 512mb 3200 DDR. Will the difference in the bus cause ram problems? As in I want to have both sticks in the sametime for a gig of ram.

    It's in a poopie system not sure if the front end is 400mhz... if i am not mistaken it underclocks.

    EDIT: The front end was 333 even if i wanted to dual up to two 400mhz i couldn't. Oh well.

    You can have both sticks in but they will automatically underclock the pc3200 stick to pc2700. All the ram will run to the speed of the slowest ram.
