Yes, this laptop does support 32GB RAM. This has been tested by some forum users by putting in 2X16GB
I dont have anything more than 8GB RAM stick right now, so I cannot test this. Thanks.

8gb of RAM will be not enough. With big games laptop used up to 12gb of RAM. So pertfectly wiil be enough 16gb.
Manufacturer supplies this laptop with such RAM -
DDR4 2400 4GB_Samsung 01FR300
DDR4 2400 4GB_SK hynix 01AG708
DDR4 2400 4GB_Ramaxel 01AG701
DDR4 2400 4GB_Micron 01AG709
DDR4 2400 8GB_Samsung 01FR301
DDR4 2400 8GB_SK hynix 01AG711
DDR4 2400 8GB_Ramaxel 01AG702
DDR4 2400 8GB_Micron 01AG712

Thank you so much for the advice, i think ill be buying 8gb for now and earn for the other 8gb.. but in this instance id be having one 4gb and one 8gb does that make it 12gb in total memory?

As for now, 12GB ram is more than enough and I say this after extensive testing on ultra textures and settings.
The only game I see using a lot of ram is Deus Ex:MD , it uses up to 11gb on ultra.
Also, if your GPU is not strong enough you will probably never be able to switch to such high textures while maintaining 60fps, which makes even more sense to keep 12gb ram.
For gaming, anything between 12-16gb is more than enough for another couple of years to play on high/ultra @1080p

Omg thank you so much you save me some time browsing different forums
I have gtx 1050 i think it'll do fine? Im more into MMORPG type of games. And yes, im buying the 8gb ram so I'll be running 12gb memory.
My only concerns are right brand or compability?
The 3 essentials that needed to be same as the first one ram.
