Theres no need to buy faster (more expensive) memory because you wont be able to force the board to use them at their rated speed. Also, in case you were adding ram instead of replacing, ram at different speeds can run (sometimes not) but the system automatically switches to the speed of the slowest ram. Can't find your answer ?
