I just recently purchased the Retina 5K Display 3.8GHz Processor 2TB Storage with i7 upgrade.

I am a video editor and photographer using Premer Pro, Lightroom and Photoshop as well as some other programs.

I would like to upgrade to 32GB of RAM! Any RAM recommendations? I am also looking for a UPS (battery backup) solution and a second monitor that is affordable. Also, if you have any recommendations of accessories please share! I am upgrading from a Mid 2010 MBP!

Thank you, I'm leaning towards OWC RAM.
OWC RAM tends to be overpriced. For that matter, so is any RAM that claims to be "for Macs." We're on the x86 platform; you can use the same RAM as in Windows and Linux systems.

My preferred RAM suppliers are G.Skill and Corsair, but there are plenty others who are reliable. Shop around for deals. I have a 2015 iMac with 32 GB of RAM (four Corsair Vengeance sticks). It's nice - hard to believe that number in a desktop system; I remember seeing it only in servers a bit over a decade ago and thinking that it was such a huge number...
