I have OCZ XTC 2048MB PC5400 DDR2 667MHz (2x1024MB) memory in my box system and I got a good price on some OCZ SLI 4096MB PC6400 DDR2 800MHz (2x2048MB). Will the newer higher speed and now cheaper memory work in system??? Can someone out there please explain to me if the answer is NO. Or at least send me to a site that explains memory differences and their ability to back fit. Thanks

I want to use (2) PC6400 800MHz 2096G pair OCZ memory in my computer system in place of the (4) PC5400 667MHz OCZ Memory that is now using. I don't overclock, I just want to know if I can just simply replace the PC5400 667MHz with the PC6400 800MHz memory. Isn't it really just backward compatible, the 800MHz being just newer and let me know why 800MHz memory wouldn't work just fine at 667MHz???? Please someone that has done this or someone that really knows for sure that it will work. I cant figure why 800MHz DDR would not work at 667MHz.
