DDR2700 or DDR2100?

I building a new system using a Biostar M7VIT board which uses the Via KT400/VT8235 chipset.
I'm going to be using an AthlonXP 1800 Thoroughbred processor.

What I am wondering is if it is worth paying more to get the DDR2100 (266) ram or the DDR2700 (333)?

The board supports DDR200/266/333/400 but I don't plan on getting the DDR3200 (400) cause from what I've been reading it's not worth the extra money. However, I'm wondering if there is a significant performance difference between DDR2100 and DDR2700 in the setup I would be running:

Biostar M7VIT
AthlonXP 1800 Thoroughbred
Seagate Barracuda IV ata100 7200rpm
Nvidia Geforce4 mx440 64mb ddr agp8x or agp4x (haven't decided yet)

So is it worth it going with DDR2700? Or is the best price/performance choice DDR2100? I'd be going with generic memory too.

Thanks!
