Can I completely change all the RAM to PC5300 on a mother board that might only require PC3200, or visa versa

What is the Manufacturer and Model of the motherboard?

ASUS K8N, AMD Sempron 3100+(1.8ghz), 1gb RAM, eVGA 5500FX 256mb AGP, two WD120gb SATA drives in RAID 0 (striping), 450w power supply.

Fold well, so that others may prosper.

PC3200 is DDR. PC5300 is DDR2. Not interchangeable.

Thanks, everybody, this is just a question in general.
Just wondering can I use faster RAM, if they're compatible, of course.

You can, but the memory will only work at the motherboard's fastest supported speed.
