Hello and Welcome to the forum.. :)

I'm a little confused here as you mention the upgrade disc and then the RC "disk"..

If your going to be purchasing the Upgrade disc and installing Windows 7 from it then you can upgrade whatever component you would like on your PC.. If you replace something like the CPU (for example) then you will have reinstall Windows 7 afterwards of course..

The Upgrade media allows you to reinstall as many times as you'd like but you can only activate the serial number on one computer.. ;) This doesn't mean that if you swap out your Motherboard and or CPU that it's no good anymore, it just means you can't have the same serial number activated on two (or more) computers at once.. ;)

Hopefully this answers your question, if not please let me know and I'll try again.. :)
