Generally, there are no issues with running faster RAM than is necessary. The RAM will just underclock as necessary to match the capabilities of the mobo.

Appreciated. I'd much rather use PC3200 so I can use it latter after the old Dell get replaced down the line.

It wouldn't surprise me if you could find PC3200 cheaper as well since that's a much more mainstream product than PC2100 these days.
