PowerBook and Ram question

Hi. I just bought a used 12" powerbook G4 1.5ghz and I want to add some ram to max it at 1.25Gb. Did anyone try to use ddr400 instead of ddr333 on powerbooks? In theory it will run at 333 like in any pc, but is this flawless in powerbooks? Because ddr333 is expensive nowadays.
Thanks for any help.

DDR400 will revert to DDR333 speeds, and should run just fine.
