Memory/Ram Motherboard Question

I just built a new PC. It has a Asus M4A785T-M/CSM with 2 sticks of Corsair 2Gb DDR3 PCI1600 Dual Ram in it already.

My friend gave me 2 sticks of Patriot 2gb DDR2 800MHz PDC24G6400ELK Ram.

Can I put this Patriot Ram into my new Asus M4A785T-M/CSM motherboard safely alongside the Corsair memory?

EDIT: Last question. If the answer is no. In the future if I want to buy 4gb more ram do I have to get the EXACT same memory? Brand and all? Or does it just have to be DDR3 1600?

Thanks

I suppose in the future I can physically take the stick of memory into the store and say "I need this, exactly this." when I do decide to upgrade.

No. The motherboard will only take DDR3 RAM.

For best results, it should be identical RAM. Next best choice is same speed, timing, and voltage. Next best choice is same speed and timing. And so forth.

If you are mixing memory, you may need to increase RAM voltage or relax the timings for stability.
