Just after some opinions on this build.
PC used only for gaming, not planning to do any manual overclocking at this stage.
Apologies if some questions have been asked before, still in the process of researching.
Budget around $1300-$1400 USD.

This RAM has timings: 16-18-18-36. Wondering whether it's worth it to get 3200MHz CL 14 RAM for this build, for 1440p gaming?
Located in Australia and the price difference between 3200MHz CL 16 and CL 14 RAM is at least $100 AUD, around $68 USD.
Also have seen some people saying the Vengeance LPX RAM is somewhat old and having issues with this CPU?

?
Is it worth it at all to purchase PCle 4 model with this CPU?


Thanks a lot for your time.

Well you wont notice that big of the difference especially when you will be playing at 1440p where the gpu is the bottleneck anyway. If its the same money 3600Mhz ram at cl16 vs 3200mhz cl14 then totally go with the 3600mhz kit. If 3600mhz kit cost even more and you dont want to waste more money then stay with 3200mhz cl16. I have Vengeance LPX with ryzen 5 3600 and b450 tomahawk i dont see any problem at all i was even able to clock them higher than the advertised speed.
