Default RAM comaptibility

Is pc2700 DDR SDRAM backwards compatible with PC2100 DDR SDRAM?

PC2700 will simply underclock to match the speeds of PC2100 if you try to put the sticks in the same system

So it is compatible? What if I put a pc2100 and pc2700 together? Will that work or will it screw up?

That's what I just answered. If you put them both in the same system, the PC2700 will underclock itself to match the slower PC2100

some RAM is gay, and certain brands jsut don't mix. if its the same brand PC2100/2700 it should work fine like Nubius just said. but if you are mixing say PC2100Mushkin with PC2700Kingston u might have a problem, and you might not...just gotta test it.
