Default RAM Question / Issue... Suggestions Needed TY

well im kinda in a tight spot

AMD XP 2000+
ECS K7S5A V3.0

my kingston value ram 512meg DDR pc2100 -- DEAD

and i ordered myself a new computer..... but i want to turn this one into a lan server

i cannot find any pc2100 for less then 150 but i am not paying that when i can get pc3200 or pc3500 for 50 - 60 dollars

now my question is if i get the ram that i can get and put it in there will the system start and the ram will just set itself to pc2100?

any ideas or concerns please post

THANK YOU Very Happy

I agree, the ram will automatically slow itself down to PC2100.

As long as its the same type of ram (DDR) then pretty much any ram will do.
