Upgrading memory question

I currently have 2 512MB installed (512MB VIA Technologies Desktop PC2100 DDR266 DIMM) and want to swap them out for 2, 1GB memory boards. The manufacturers site says that I need to install 1GB PC2100 nonECC DDR DIMM.

Can a 1GB PC2700 nonECC DDR DIMM board be used instead of the PC2100?

Thanks in advance,

Normally you can put faster memory in, it will just slow itself down to match the speed of the processor.
