Default RAM question

i'm gettin ready to build a gaming pc and am thinking about the ASUS A8N5X mobo: http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16813131569

i'm tryin to select some RAM and this type was suggested: G.SKILL 2GB (2x1GB) http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16820231057

Question: will DDR 500 (PC4000) RAM work w/ a mobo that calls for DDR 400 (PC3200)?

i think the higher #'s on the ram means it can overclock better but still work in the mobo, am i right?

thanks!

the fact is that PC 3200 is the latest official standard (*unless this has changed since i last looked lol), you will not find a board that says that it will take above PC3200
