[SOLVED] 3200g Build Advice

I am looking at building my first PC and will be going pretty budget for now. I am planning on utilizing the 3200g to let me get going and then adding a dedicated graphics card down the line. I want to get components that will help me get as much out of the 3200g now along with being ready for adding something like an RX580/590 or 1660 Super (depending on budget at the time). Here is the core of my current build list and some questions...

CPU: Ryzen 3 3200g $80
MoBo: ASRock B450 Pro4F micro ATX $71
Memory: G.Skill RipJaws V 2x8GB 3600 mhz 16CL $83
Storage: WD SN550 500 GB NVME SSD $70


Questions:
For memory, would there be much of a noticeable difference (now without or with a future graphics card) between memory with 3600 mhz / 16 cl, 3200 / 16 cl, or 3200 / 18 cl? Right now I have been looking at 3600/16 for $83 or 3200/16 for $70.

For storage, that NVME above boasts 8gb/s and up to 2400mb/s write. There are cheaper non-nmve ssds that list 6gb/s and up to 550 mb/s. Would there be any performance difference to gaming between those two?

Basically, would it be worth roughly $15 to get the 3600mhz vs 3200mhz and would it be worth roughly $15 to get the faster NVME ssd?

the difference between 3200 and 3600 isnt that notable and in my opinion as long as you want to get a budget pc, i think you should get the 3200 one. if you really want perfomance and 10$ isnt a problem, get the 3600 sure
for the storage, 15$ is not much and you get some notable performance from an nvme than an ssd. so get the nvme, its more peformant and not much more expensive
its not worth 15$ more for the ram but for the storage it is, it really is

Thanks for the advice. I am going to go ahead with the NVME ssd. Still trying to work out the memory and possibly motherboard (as prices and availability are changing so often).

Another question regarding the memory, in the specs on a lot of motherboards they are saying max memory speed at 3200mhz. A couple examples I have found when looking at deals are the ASUS ROG Crosshair VI Hero (with wifi; open box at a local store), ASRock b450m Pro4, ASRock b450m steel legend, etc.

Would a 3600mhz stick be compatible? Would it not run at the speed it is capable of?

no problem 8))
another problem is that the cpu might not support the memory and i think that the ryzen 3 3200g does support 3000 mhz maximum (i am not 100% sure) , even though there are some compatible motherboards like the b450 which is also de cheapest one

If the 3400g could be purchased for only $50 more that then 3200g, would that be worthwhile? I don't see a lot of performance differences when the price is nearly $100 more but a local shop has an added incentive on the 3400g that effectively makes it only $50 more.

i dont recomend you buying the 3400g cuz its an insanely small improvment for 50-100$ more
i recomend you to buy the 3200g or an older genartion ryzen 5
