Question about Computers & Internet
If the memory supports those frequencies, in most cases it would work, now depending if the board is proprietary, like dell or some hp's, then you may run into compatibility issues. you can find this information from the manufactures website.

SOURCE: change 400mhz to 266mhz
Hi, Normally yes. It is the motherboard that will limit the memory speed. Shifting down from 400 to 266 should not be a problem. However, I have run across instances where the memory is cut in half (dunno why), but very rare. Good luck and kind regards.

You can use only DDR 266Mhz dimms maximum upto 2 GB. i.e. one DIMMS of 266Mhz of 2GB or two of 1GB each. For more details read bellow:
System Memory Features
Two DIMM sockets supporting 2.5 V (only) 184-pin 200/266 MHz Double Data Rate (DDR) SDRAM DIMMs with gold-plated contacts
Unbuffered non-ECC DIMMs only
Maximum total system memory: 2 GB; minimum total system memory: 64 MB
Serial Presence Detect (SPD) DIMMs only
Suspend to RAM
Do not use ECC DIMMs with the D845GBV board. Using ECC DIMMs could damage the Desktop Board.

If you bay DDR 400 it will slow itself down to 266 automatically. I've seen a very few cases where it didn't work because of voltage differences but that is very rare and usually with really cheap OEM motherboards, your Gigabyte should be safe.

The Motherboard's specifications mention that it uses DDR Ram, while the FSB runs at 400MHz. That means that any kind of DDR memory will work up to the maximum of 2 GB (it has 2 slots, so it's up to the max of 2x1GB DDR sticks).
There's no issue with the speed, actually the faster you can get the better results you will have. Try looking for 1GB DDR 400MHz (preferably two of them, if you want to max out the capacity and since it's kind of cheap to do so).
The one you tried and didn't work, might be due to a faulty RAM module.
