Gen8 Upgrade Question

If i upgrade my RAM to 16GB and leave the CPU as is (Celeron) and later on down the line decide to buy a better CPU, will the memory need to be upgraded or can stay as  is?

 

Thanks

does the i5 3470T support ECC memory?

I have one in my server and together with ECC memory, but I don't know if ECC is really active.

The server would not boot w/o ECC memory.

The ark.intel website says it does not support ECC, so wondering how it boots and does not bitch

 

Out of interest, was this a good buy?

 

I'm thinking of getting one or i3 as the Xeon's are overkill for my purpose.
