If I have three memory sticks, each one is 512 MB DDR, yet one is running at a speed of 266 Mhz while the other two are running at a speed of 400 Mhz, can I use them all at the same time?

If I can, will the slower stick slow down the other two sticks--kind of like "you're only as strong as your weakest link"--or will each stick run at it's own speed?

I ask because I have a leftover 512 DDR (266 Mhz) stick from a computer and am wondering if I should add it to my home computer which already has two sticks of 512 DDR (400 Mhz).
