Not sure where to post this on the forum being that it's my first time on this website.

I'm looking to purchase a laptop for video editing purposes, but have a budget that I want to stick to. I don't know much about computers and believe I found a suitable laptop and also want to beef it up a bit. It is an ASUS K501UW-AB78 15.6-inch Full-HD Gaming Laptop (Intel Core i7, GTX 960M, 8GB DDR4, 512GB SSD).

I want to add additional 8GB stick for RAM, along with another 500 mb SSD. So would an i7, GTX 960m, 16gb (dual) RAM and a ~1TB SSD be good for editing videos and rendering purposes? Are the components I have picked out compatible with the laptop? If not, what are compatible parts? (Or how can I find out what is compatible?) Is there anything I'm not considering?

Here's the list of things I plan on purchasing: http://a.co/3as2uqO

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Generally speaking, it should be adequate. Video editing is CPU intensive so a quad core CPU would be better than a dual core CPU. If you use a program capable of using nVidia's CUDA cores, then I suppose it should be fine.
