[SOLVED] Advice on future memory upgrades

I made my PC about 4 months ago:

Ryzen 5 1600
MSI B450M Pro-M2
Corsair Vengeance LPX 8GB DDR4 2400
MSI Radeon RX 560 4GB
EVGA BQ 500W 80+ Bronze

I was thinking about upgrading eventually to a 2600X, with a RX580 8GB, and a B450 Tomahawk, or a X470-f gaming. I heard dual RAM sticks are preferred for Ryzen CPU's, and I was wondering if I should just get a new set of DDR4 3000's or 3200's rather than another 2400. Thoughts? I just needed a second opinion was all.


Memory compatibility is only guaranteed if you buy all the DIMMs in a matched set. So buying a matched set of two DIMMs is the best (but more expensive) answer. Performance improves up to about 3000 speed RAM. After that the price increase does not correspond to the performance improvement.
