Default Old Memory in New PC?

Would it be ok to take the memory out of my old PC and put it in my new build for the time being?

The memory that I ordered for my new build is faulty and needs sending back which may take a while, so I was wondering if I'd be able to use my old memory if it works?

I have the following motherboard

ASUS P5N73-AM GeForce 7050 Socket 775 onboard Graphics 8 channel audio mATX Motherboard - Ebuyer

and the following memory

Ocz 4gb DDR2 PC2-6400 Gold XTC (2 x 2gb) : OCZ2G8004GK |Specialtech.co.uk -

The memory in my old PC says the following on each stick


1GB DDR2-800Mhz-CL5

It will only be temporary as when my new memory is replaced for a working it, I'll put that in. Just thinking of ways how I can get my new machine up and running quicker.

Is there anything else I need to check to make sure it will work?

It will also let me know if it's definately my memory that's causing my PC problems!
