i bought msi b350 mortar and ryzen 5 2400G with ram 2400mhz as the seller said that the 3000mhz will crash with the mobo (in the manual it really say that the max speed is 2666)but now i see on youtube that its possible to run even 3200mhz with the b350 (not sure if it is the same one)
my question is does it really matter??
and if so ... can i overclock the ram speed to maybe 2800 ?! (psu:bitfinix bpa 600w ... should i upgrade it?!)

Intel, no speeds don't matter

AMD Ryzen, yes speeds do matter. Overclocking the memory may help but your better off buying a 3000/3200mhz kit as it's been tested to work at those speeds. The difference between 2133 & 3200 on a AMD Ryzen system can be almost 20 FPS so it is quite significant.

(Not sure about your PSU).
