Adding additional RAM to DELL XPS desktop computer - how difficult

Simple question as follows:

I have my eye on a dell XPS desktop computer. It appears to be a good deal (Canadian site in Cdn dollars) as below:

https://www.dell.com/en-ca/shop/dell-desktops-workstations/xps-desktop/spd/xps-8950-desktop/dxps8950_s1401e?view=configurations

How difficult is it to update the RAM if I want to increase RAM from the stated 16 to 32GB?

It has four slots and the current specs are: 16 GB, 2 x 8 GB, DDR5, 4400 MHz; up to 128 GB

Is the change as simple as purchasing another two 8GB of same specs RAM and inserting as per the many Youtube videos?

Thanks in advance to anybody who takes the time answer. Feel free to comment if you wish on its suitability for post processing using the Topaz suite suit of products.

My current computer is 10 years old and is choking on Topaz products.
