Default DDR2 Rams with Different Frequencies...does It Work?

Well the title says it all...

Im just about to purchase a new DDR2 ram... the one that i have in my pc right now has a freq of 333Mhz while the new one that im trying to purchase I just read it has 800Mhz...

Im just wondering if it would cause any problem.

:happy:

No not really it would just stop the 800mhz ram working at full speed.
