Though these offers say "upgrade", it hasn't precluded doing a clean/new install in the past (i.e. with 8).

Power consumption "far higher" when idling? :confused: Not sure where you got that information, they're about the same. GTX 960 is 8-10W idle, and R9 285 is around the same. Even a power-hungry R9...

Unless you have a specific need for 16GB of RAM, there's no need to "upgrade" to 16GB, 'cause it will do pretty much nothing for you.


Changing to a mATX board now, won't really do much for you...
