HP Z800 upgrade options review

HP Z800
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hey guys,


I came across an HP Z800 unit earlier this year and have decided to build a nice rig for home use.  The machine won't be on persistently, will be used as standard home pc, streaming, music and gaming (I'm planning on using it for Skyrim and Fallout modding).  Below are some of the specs of what I have and plan to buy for this rig.  I was hoping you guys can tell me if its a doable or not doable.  I'm open to recommendations, but I am on a "married gaming dad" budget.  






I own one E5630 Xeon
