Default DDR question

I recently bought a new motherboard for my brother's computer and i think i made a mistake because I saw the stats of this motherboard and the DDR standard was DDR 226(PCI 2100), i bought a corsiar and the speed was DDR 400(PCI 3200). It will work just fine right?..just so long as the motherboard standard isn't faster than the RAM or vice-versa? Well i just want to make sure, thanks in advance
