Hello, fellow forumers!

As my upgrade is coming these days, browsing RAM gave me two options 3200 Mhz, CL 18 and 3000 Mhz, CL 16. Both options are 16 gigs in dual channel. The price difference being around 4 USD in favor of the one with less frequancy. Also, it's HyperX (3200) and Corsair (3000). I am now having a 16 gigs 2400 Mhz, 15 CL dual channel.

The memory I'll buy is gonna be paired with:
CPU: Ryzen 5 2600 that will be OCd to 4.2 (hopefully I'll win the lottery);
GPU: GTX 1060 6 gig
Main purpose: Gaming.
Rarely photo/video editing and maybe some streaming.

So, which one should I buy? Should I go for higher frequancy or for lower latency?

HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE!
