Default PC4000 vs PC3200 RAM

Okay, I've read other posts saying go ahead and get PC4000 over PC3200 even though AMD boards only support PC3200. Is it actually worth the money. I also want to verify that it IS okay to use PC4000 RAM in boards that only support PC3200, and possibly understand any problems that I may encounter doing so.

Thanks,

I'd say it's not worth the money.
It will NOT work any faster, the mobo supports a maximum clock speed of 400mhz (pc3200) so no matter how fast the memory is it will work at 400mhz. (pc3200)

It should work fine, but I would get it only if u are planning on overclocking.
