Default Combining 2 different speeds of RAM..

I was just curious to know what would happen if I were to use my current stick of 1 GB DDR2 667 RAM with the set of Corsair TWINX 1 GB DDR2 800 that I want to buy.

I'm asking because I read somewhere, or thought I did anyways, that when running to different speeds of ram that the higher clocked RAM will be downclocked to the lower speed, I was just curious to know if this is true or not.

Yes, I believe that is correct, it will run at the slower speed.

Dammit, I really wanted to get the corsair set, I suppose I could still get it, and then just replace that stick of 1 gig with another set of corsair or something. Perhaps I will do that.
