I think it most likely that both memory sticks will just run at 266MHz, but this isn't guaranteed--using two incompatible memory sticks of ANY kind can cause problems; the only way to find out if it works for you is to try it.

Is there any reason that you would want to do that? As others have said, most likely both RAMs will run at 266mHz. There is a chance though, that something will malfunction, as always when putting together two obviously incompatable hardware.
