Default New MOBO, 8 yr old RAM

I was wondering if new motherboards these support memories that are manufactured 8 years ago.

More specifically, is the memory compatible with my motherboard (both listed below)?

Motherboard: Evga FTW
Memory: Click Memory

If you are wondering why am I doing this, I am doing this because my memory will not arrive on time for my friend's brother to pick up to deliver to me. I have a computer that is 8 years old and its purpose was to play Warcraft 3: Reign of Chaos with, but I do not use it anymore (other than for browsing and writing reports/documents).

Thank you in advance for you input.

(I was going to do the same with the VGA, but it was a 4x AGP and it is not supported by today's MOBO. Luckily, Evga GTX470 was in stock early this week and will be delivered on time for my friend to pick up.)

DDR memory is not compatible with that motherboard. It's not even the same amount of contacts.
PC: AMD Phenom 9950 2.6ghz Quad Core, ATI Radeon HD 5770, 8gb DDR2 RAM
Phone: Apple iPhone 5s 64gb (jailbroken)
Handheld Games: Nintendo 3DS XL, Tapwave Zodiac 2, GamePark Holdings GP2X F100
