Default Dual-Channel Ram Latency

Hi, I have got two rams with me now, one is a Kingston 512MB DDR 266Mhz, and another one is a Kingston 512MB DDR 333Mhz. Generally they are the same specs but with different latency. So is it advisable to dual-channel them even though they have different latency? Coz what I heard was that the 333Mhz will run at the lower speed of 266Mhz, but the main thing is whether will it cause harm to my pc

uh, they're different speed; i'm almost sure you can't run two different sticks in dual channel

that's why it's called "dual," not "running two different sticks"
