Upgrading RAM and other items, need compatabililty help please.

Ok, so right now I have this kind of RAM according to the Crucial.com scanner

Memory Type: DDR3 PC3-10600, DDR3 PC3-12800, DDR3 PC3-14900, DDR3 (non-ECC)

Now, I plan on upgrading my Motherboard to this product.

GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 ATX AMD Motherboard - Newegg.com

Will the RAM I currently have work on this Motherboard until I'm able to order more?

I don't want to get the Motherboard and try and mess things up, so if I'm not able to I will probably get it and wait until I'm also able to get the RAM before putting it all together. :/

"DDR3 PC3-10600, DDR3 PC3-12800, DDR3 PC3-14900, DDR3 (non-ECC)" doesn't tell what you have installed; it's just showing 4 different general types of memory.

I recommend using CPU-Z:

CPUID - System & hardware benchmark, monitoring, reporting

This is a .zip file. CPU-Z doesn't get installed, you just open it and use it. So open it up and switch to the "SPD" tab. While looking at the SPD tab, press Alt+Print Screen on your keyboard (this is a Windows keyboard shortcut for taking a screenshot of just the active Window). Save this screenshot in your program of choice, or use Microsoft Paint. Save it using the .PNG format.

Now insert this screenshot in your next post and we will be able to tell exactly what you have installed based on what is in the Part Number field.
