ASUS ROG Strix SCAR 18 (2023) Upgrade SSD and DDR5

Level 7

I'm new here and don't know much. I am not even sure if this is the right place to ask this.
I am buying a ASUS ROG Strix SCAR 18 (2023)

I want to upgrade the RAM and run two SSD in RAID 0

I'm trying to see if these components are compatible right out of the box:

ASUS ROG Strix SCAR 18 (2023) Gaming Laptop, 18" Nebula Display 16:10 QHD 240Hz/3ms, GeForce RTX 4090, Intel Core i9-13980HX, 32GB DDR5, 2TB PCIe SSD, Wi-Fi 6E, Windows 11 Pro, G834JY-XS97

G.SKILL Ripjaws SO-DIMM 64GB (2 x 32GB) 262-Pin DDR5 SO-DIMM DDR5 5600 (PC5 44800) Laptop Memory Model F5-5600S4040A32GX2-RS

Two of these to replace the two 1TB SSD the laptop ships with:
WD_BLACK SN850X NVMe M.2 2280 2TB PCI-Express 4.0 x4 Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) WDS200T2X0E

Also, if it were you and you wanted 64gb of DDR5 and two 2TB SSD what would YOU buy? 🙂

Thank you for your help.

I purchased this laptop as well, and it shipped with 16 GB, but i bought 64 GB DDR5 awaiting for them to arrive so i can replace the stock ones, i went for Crucial 4800MHZ cuz i dont want to over pay for the 5600 MHz since BIOS isnt updated yet, and made sure they are compatible with the laptop before i bought them, here's the serial if u wanna do the same (CT2K32G48C40S5)

and as for the laptop, for some reason it shipped only 1 SSD 2 TB, instead of 2x 1TB SSDs configuered in RAID0 .. that i still dont understand why, although that aint what they advertised. but good enough for me, cant complain ^^
