Do I need to re-activate after adding ram and/or a new videocard?

Hi all,

I bought some additional ram and am planning to buy a new videocard in the near future.

Will adding the ram and installing the new videocard result in the de-activation of my Windows 10 pro?

The only time you have worry re activation is if you:

Change the motherboard.

Microsoft considers this as a new PC and if your using an OEM licence it will become invalid.

Change the CPU x 2.

If you change the cpu twice then this will again effect activation.

Thanks for both your replies! This helps me a lot. I just recieved my additional ram so I will install it :-D. Now it's a matter of saving up for a new videocard :)
