Gateway: memory/ graphics Question

Hi Guys: I have two questions about expansion and graphics cards on new gateway.

1. Can I upgrade memory? I have sites like Newegg saying YES to 16GB and some consumer comments saying NO..."I'm maxed with 8 (4x2), which came with PC.

2. Should I upgrade graphics card? I would like to run 2 HD TV and/or Monitors at once. I have one HDMI, 1 DVI, and 1 display ports. I'll paste stat's below. I'm no pc geek, so please use simpleton language

Stats: Gateway FX6860-UR20P, i7- 2600, quad core, 3.4GHz, 64 bit, chipset

Intel H67, CPU socket set LGA 1155, 8 GB (4 x 2gb) DDR3-1333,

Radeon HD 6750 1 GB, 2 USB 3.0's and 10 USB 2's. I added blu ray

burner. Have 3 more 3.5, 1 more PCIe x 1 and zero more PCI x 16 slots.

  1. What do you use your machine for? Because unless it's 3D rendering or intense photo editing 8Gigs of memory should be more than enough.
  2. thanks for the advise. No intense photo work here....I'm sure it's over-kill, it's only money. I'm sure there's no advantage now at all, but it's future demands on the machine I'm thinking about. I remember when having 256 RAM was being totally maxed out. At the time I bought my current pc having 2 GB of RAM was theoretical. But I appreciate any input.
