I currently have 8Gb of RAM on my system. Due to personal and performance issues I'm getting another stick of 8GB for my birthday :) but before I can get that one soon, I want to make sure of one thing; Will it work?

I have a Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit) OEM, which from my knowledge binds itself with the motherboard for ever. This means if I change the motherboard I pretty much **** everything up. But will adding more RAM to the system do the same?

Correct.

No. If there are any issues, it will simply be due to incompatibility due to hardware design.

Alright, thanks. And yes, if something goes wrong, Hardware to blame.

I also know Home Premium supports maximum 16Gb but it will last for a good while
