Default Will my laptop accept PC2700 RAM?

I decided to upgrade my RAM from 512 MB to 1 GB (2 x 512 MB) and I just have a quick question about compatibility.

I have a Gateway 450ROG and the specs say it supports PC2100 DDR RAM. However, I ran that "CrucialScan" program that tells you what kind of memory your computer will recognize and it said PC2700 would work with my system Is this the case? I found a good deal on Ebay for 2 512mb modules of Kingston RAM and it's PC2700 so I'd like to make sure it's compatible before I buy. Thanks for any clarification,

You'd think it would be able to run PC3200 memory with it's 400 MHz system bus.

I would say the PC2700 memory should work well in that lappy.


Found this from Intel -
Support for up to 2 GB of DDR 333/266/200 memory technology
DDR333 = PC2700
