Does this mobo supports 3200 MHZ DDR RAM? Its specified in GIGABYTE's Website support list that it supports only upto 2666MHz. But i have watched many youtube tutorials in pc builds with 3200MHZ Ram. which is true? please let me know !
In addition please let me know whether this mobo is good for VR Gaming when compared to MS X470 Gaming Plus!!

Not sure where you have read the 2666MHz, it supports much higher:
Support for DDR4 3600(O.C.) / 3466(O.C.) / 3200(O.C.) / 3000(O.C.) / 2933 / 2667 / 2400 / 2133 MHz memory modules

You just have to OC the RAM.
Also motherboard doesn't really make a difference for VR, VR will be GPU and CPU dependent.

The support list you have linked depends on the CPU. Yours is pinnacle which supports up to 3200 as per the QVL. But the QVL is usually just what has been tested:

Thanks So much for the clarification!!
Will you please check the compatibility of these two products with the mobo?

The RAM should be fine - it may not be on the QVL, but again, that more likely means it just hasn't been tested. As long as it's the correct type RAM, you should be fine.

And yes the NVMe drive should also be fine based on the socket support:
  1. 1 x M.2 connector (Socket 3, M key, type 2242/2260/2280/22110 SATA and PCIe 3.0 x4/x2* SSD support) (M2A_SOCKET)
    * Actual bandwidth may vary by CPU.
  2. 1 x M.2 connector (Socket 3, M key, type 2242/2260/2280 PCIe 2.0 x4/x2 SSD support) (M2B_SOCKET)
:)
