Ive got some 800 corsair ram from my old system and Im about to order a new mobo and cpu. The board I was looking at (gigabyte 790fx) has a mem standard of 1066. Will my old ram work? Do I just have to plug it in on the bios. Or will it all just go to hell? Im saving up money to get 1066 ram but for the next month or so will the 800 work?
