Default 1.8v memory in an older system

Would it be ok using the newer 1.8v memory in my older system that supports 3.3v, would it affect the performance of the memory much if i can, the memory bus is also a lot lower speed in the new memory, i know this will lower the performance already

What motherboard do you have and what ram do you want to use.

Nope that board uses ddr ram you are out of luck trying to use ddr2 in it.
It also uses sdr as well but get ddr.

Best you could do would be 2 1gb sticks of ddr pc3200.
