You should be fine. The only problem would be if it was ECC and your board is not, or you need ECC and the RAM is not. Since ECC is primarily for servers you ought to be gold.

On a thought, though, you might want to double-check the max your board can handle, both in total and RAM size. Some old boards can only handle smaller RAM sticks, like 512MB or 1GB, and/or a small total amount altogether.

It would be more helpful if you provided your current components.
