Mixing Ddr Ram

I guess this isn't a linux question. But I have ddr 400 and ddr 333. Can I use both sticks if I set the bios to the lower of the two speeds. Thanks.

In theory yes, in practise mixing ram sometimes works and sometime dosn't, the only way to know if the two sticks will work together is to try them and see.
