Hello! I currently have 16 gigs of ram but want to go to 32. I have 2 ram slots available.
money isnt really an issue, I want whatever my pc can handle and the best thats available for my setup but I dont really know what Im doing .(my x helped me set up my pc)
Heres a pic of my entire pc setup.

this would be really appreciated as I need more ram badly
 
Do not add to what you have sakaruu. You may encounter a mismatch and the system would run at the rated speed of the slowest kit. I never advocate mixing RAM kits and you would get better performance with a faster rated kit.

Get a 32MB (2x16) kit at 3200MHz and keep what you have as spares.
If you want a recommendation then I suggest Gskill F4-3200C16D-32GTZ 32GB (2 x 16GB) Available from Newegg if your in the USA for $115. https://www.newegg.com/g-skill-32gb-288-pin-ddr4-sdram/p/N82E16820232411 This kit have been tested by the Motherboard manufacturer and known to work well.

There are many other combinations and you can choose from the QVL here: https://dlcdnets.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/LGA1151/MAXIMUS_VIII_HERO/M8H_DRAM_QVL_20160411.pdf

Ensure you update your Bios to the latest version.

oh I didnt even think about doing something like that thank you! does the 32 gigs work fine with my current pc set up? I know like if you get something to strong it can really cause problems for a processor or etc that cant handle it
 
Yes the kit I recommended have been tested in conjunction with your Motherboard. Higher frequency RAM would work too however you would have to know how to use your Bios to configure them. If you have no experience with installing new RAM then take your system to a computer technician who will also ensure they are timed correctly and receive the correct voltage
.As the memory controller is on the CPU, too high a frequency RAM maybe more than it can handle.
