Default memory speed question

Ok first off not sure if my computer is considered high performance but anyways I want to upgrade my memory but I was wondering what would happen if I were to use DDR 500 memory instead of normal DDR 400?

EDIT: I was wondering if memory like this would work

Send a message via AIM to no_Wedge

it should just put it down to 400 speeds and then you can overclock it higher

RAM will be clocked lower. If you decide to OC it will be easier on the RAM because it's not running at full speed.
I\'m happy with it.
