My computer had four ram memory slots which only two were being used by 4gb ram cards each totaling 8gb of ram. I check with a website that does upgrades and it told me I could upgrade to a total of 32gb of ram.

I purchased the intel 4820K with 16gig G.Skill Ripjaws ram. I have enough slots to expand up to 64 gig.

What it comes back to is what motherboard and CPU you are going to buy

It should work fine. The extra RAM and better graphic card will be a plus if you do photo editing if you have a good monitor to go with it.

This PC will be able to run BF3 and Skyrim on a medium resolution at a good FPS, however pushing it to a high resolution may be not as smooth.

This computer should handle them both fairly well, but not on ultra at 1080p. Anything extreme like that would required a stronger card. You should expect somewhere around medium/low or high hybrids on your graphic settings bro.

Happy Gaming
