Weird question I know but I'm building a new pc the motherboard has 4 slots for memory sticks. Is it ok if i install only 2 and leave 2 slots empty or do I have to fill in all 4 slots? Reason is simple. 2x 8gb is cheaper then 4x 4gb and if I would want to double up my ram down the road I could just simply buy 2 more stix of the same ones i already have.

You can only install two RAM like you 2X 8GB and leave two empty, and most of us ( I do) are doing like this.

What GPU do you have? Beasue the 750W PSU is good enough for the high end GPU, and the Rosewill Capstone Modular 750 W is not the top PSU for the money.
