Hi alhsni‌,

It does support 32 GB of memory:

Minimum: 4GB, Maximum: 32 GB
4GB (2x2GB)
8GB (2x4GB)
16GB (2x8GB)
32GB (2x16GB)

It does not support the GTX 1080 (it will not fit) and the Power Speed can not be updated.

Yes - as noted 32Gb is fine.

Yes - an Alienware Graphics Amplifier can be connected and a 1080 or indeed a 1080ti can be installed and used (note the AGA wants a pretty stock standard (FE) style card to make it fit properly thicker cards with complex fan options will be a challenge.

The AGA has a separate power supply, so not limited by the R3 power supply.  It has 2 x 8 or 2 x 6 pin connectors.
