In my experience this will work if the ram modules are the same type eg DDR2. Different types have the cut out in the edge connector in different places to prevent plugging the wrong modules into the slot. The 6400 and 5300 numbers indicate the access speed of the DRAM. The faster module should work in place of the slower module but not vice versa.

If it is a physical fit (size and slot position) why don't you just try it. You won't cause any damage. The worst thing that can happen is the system fails due to memory corruption errors. If this is the case just put the old ram back in.

Of course it will work, worse case scenario the ram will be underclocked. The tricky bit will be actually installing it you have to literally dismantle the acer aspire to change the ram.
