Hello. If I install the RC will I be able to upgrade to the final release, or will I have to do a complete reinstall?
Thanks for your time!

Just use update manager as normal and you'll have the final release before most others :)

Would this be the same foe the Beta versions?

Yes. The alpha, beta, RC and final versions of Ubuntu are just snapshots of the development release, but packages are being updated continuously, and you can get always get the updates with your package manager instead of reinstalling.
