I am about to get a computer from a friend. I took a look at it and it uses PC2700 DDR SDRAM.
I have an old computer that I use for parts and am going to take the grafics card, and Ram out of the old comp. The Ram is PC2100 DDR SDRAM.

My question is will I have any issues with switching the RAM from PC2700 to PC2100?

Any help is of course appriciated.

Really? I have 2 different brands and they ran fine in my old computer.

Or do you mean same brand as the PC2700 in the new computer.

BTW I am taking out the single 256 PC2700 module and Putting in 2 PC2100 at 512 a piece.

You won't always get it, there is a chance however, so it's always recommended that you don't buy new RAM from a different manufacturer. The only thing that is guaranteed is that the high clocked ram will be downclocked to the slowest speed ram. Eg. If you put PC2700 in with PC2100 both sets of ram will run at PC2100 speeds.
