I am trying to choose one between these options:
  • G.SKILL TridentZ RGB Series 64GB (4 x 16GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) Desktop Memory Model F4-3200C16D-32GTZR $271.98
  • G.SKILL TridentZ RGB Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) Desktop Memory Model F4-3200C14D-16GTZR $299.98
  • G.SKILL TridentZ RGB Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3600 (PC4 28800) Desktop Memory Model F4-3600C16Q-32GTZRC $204.99
CPU is 9900K and GPU is 2080Ti. Mostly for gaming. Any suggestion would be helpful.

For gaming 64GB is just a plain waste.
Even 32GB is going to be a stretch, but between the two 32GB kits its comes down to what processor you would be using.
If its Ryzen, I would opt for the 3600MHz kit, save the 100 bucks and put it to better use elsewhere. Additionally, I would try to get a 2x16GB kit, as it would place less strain on the memory controller.

Thanks! I am using 9900KF and 2080Ti
 
The first two models and description don't quite match.

Based on pricing, I assume the model is correct, so with those options C14 is best for OC, however if you just want to use XMP and save some money, the 3600 kit may be fine. Check the G.Skill QVL to see if the motherboard is compatible.
