Mixing DDR RAM Memory Speeds

My computer runs at PC2700 but I'm looking to upgrade my RAM size (it's only 248Mb). I'm buying a 512Mb DDR RAM stick that runs at PC2100 and I'm wondering if it will work ok.
Any help on this will be very much appreciated.

Should work fine as long as the PC2100 is in the first slot. DO NOT mix DDR and DDR2/DDR3, as long it is the same type. Just check to see if your motherboard supports PC2100.
