Ok, so I'm upgrading to the FX 8150 CPU. I currently have a low end quad core (AMD of course) and decided that the upgrade would be worthwhile. However, this is my very first time 'replacing' any parts of my PC. (Bear in mind I built my own so I am more than familiar with where things go and what goes where), however, I have several questions regarding switching parts. Firstly, can I just move the RAM I have now into my new motherboard from my old one without any major difficulty? ( I currently have Corsair Vengeance 16GB RAM) Here is the motherboard I am getting :

My PSU that I chose to get is here:

Budget is not that big of a deal for me however, Im not aiming to have the richest most fabulous PC ever. I simply want it to do what I ask it to. If anyone else has any other reccomendations please let me know. Though, my primary question was about the RAM.

You didn't specify exactly which Vengeance Ram modules you have so will assume they are:
1600 MHz ( PC3-12800 )

They will work fine.

If you are out for top performance, you might want to explore the Intel options.
