Tier 2 OC questions
Hey, thanks first of all for making this site! It helps a lot for someone like me who wants to build their first PC. The Tier 2 OC looks like my best bet for some gaming at a reasonable price, but I have some questions.

Is it okay to upgrade to 2x4gb of RAM on this build? Or would I need to change something else?

Also, if I were to upgrade to a higher-end graphics card in the future (2-3 years) would I have to upgrade anything other than my power supply if everything else is still working properly?

Thanks very much for the support Smile

Yes, you can upgrade to 2x4GB of RAM, I recommend getting the 1600MHz kit to have overclocking headroom.

If you upgrade your video card, you won't need to upgrade anything else, including the PSU, which is fine for about any single video card setup.

Also, moving this to the Questions forums.
