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

Hi bacon626262,

Technically the motherboard installed will support up to an AMD FX-8320 processor, however our engineers have experienced issues occurring with that CPU installed. We recommend sticking with an AMD FX-6000 series and below.
