Also, how much more RAM can I add? It says 16 GB but is that per UDIMM or is it total?

Yes its possible and indeed it looks like the max ram is indeed 16GB

 

No need to worry about the max ram cap as that doesnt mean anything for gaming, anything over 16GB is kind of silly anyhow if you are just gaming.

Now if you were making videos with this machine then the 16 gig cap is a bit bad but you can still make do (as even i can still render videos with only 16 gigs)

 

The only other change you may wish to do is to change the power supply especially if you plan on getting something like the GTX 1080, its probably a bog standard PSU that is just enough to handle your hardware but if you do any overclocking in the future with a new GPU its going to be a strain on that probably cheaply made POS that HP gave you
