DELL Poweredge 1600 SC -- RAID array degraded

I have a DELL Poweredge 1600sc server running windows 2003 server software.  It has a RAID array that is degraded.  I am looking to replace the faulty drive.  I know I need it to have an 80 pin connector, and that it must be SCSI ultra 320.  I have found a replacement drive with those specs.  However, I have been unable to find one with the same RPMs.  The existing drives that are holding the server up have 10,000 RPMs, and the closest speed I can find is 15K RPMs.  

My question is, since it is faster than the others, will it work with my current drives.  Or, do I need to keep looking.  I dont want to keep looking too long as the RAID array is in a degraded state.

Please Help!
