What one should I buy for first-gen Ryzen (1800x)
The ram I want is Corsair Vengence RGB Pro.
2x8gb.
My current ram is 2x8gb Corsair Vengence RGB 2666mhz.

Many Thanks.

What mobo do you have? If it's a B350 I wouldn't waste time with the 3600mhz ram. it won't run at it's rated speed. Even the 3200mhz may not run at it's rated speed on a B350.
I updated to the most recent bios, and it says I can run ram up to 4.2ghz. not sure though, the 3200 was more expensive

I would try using the DRAM Calculator for Ryzen and see if your current RAM will run at 2933 or 3000 MHz before buying a new kit.
