DDR 333/266 ?? RAMs

#1
I've just been wondering with some new motherboards which uses DDR instead of SDRAM, I've been seeing some DDRs are 333 or 266 Mhz.Say, (because I've never used a DDR before) for example my m/board accepts and runs on a 266 DDRs., can it also go steady and stable with a 333s ? With SDRAM, I've tried 100 and the 133, I had no problem with it but what about DDRs ?
Doe it means if the m/board accepts a 333s, when I'm upgrading I only have to purchase 333s...only ?? Helps needed because thinking of upgrading my PC to a 2.8 P4 with DDRs.Thanks.

ram works backwards

If the board runs 266 ... chances are it wont run 333 .. most ram works backwards ie on a board able to run 333 you could run 266 its backwards compatible in most cases , when you ran 133's on a 100 board your 133's were working as 100's thats normal ...you could put in 333 but why if your paying more for the 333 would you want it when it wont run higher than 266, you need to check your motherboard specs to see if it can run 333's at 333 .....
