Hi. I purchased this machine last year with all the default specs. I’d like to do architectural visualization services and gaming, therefore I’d like to upgrade:
16GB of RAM to 32GB
Nvidia GTX 1080 to maybe a 1080ti
and up the SSD.
Thing is I’m not a PC literate type of person.

The ram can be upgraded to a max of 64GB if you wish, so yes you can increase it to 32.
You should add matching memory though, to insure stability. Use a tool like Speccy to see what the timings are of the existing ram. Should be DDR4-2133.
You can upgrad to a 1080ti or a 2080ti. But do make sure whatever you go with, you find out the power requirements of it.
You will most likely have to change the power supply also. And take a tape measure and make sure you arent installing a card thats larger than what you have already. Make sure there is room to fit it.
You can upgrade the SSD also. You can replace the current sata SSD and/or you can add an NVMe M.2 SSD to the mobo.
