Im upgrading my pc so i saw this ram offer:
Kingston 16GB 3200MHz DDR4 CL16 DIMM (Kit of 2) XMP HyperX Predator
Is it enough for gaming at 1080p/60Hz?
I have a gtx 1080Ti and im buying a Ryzen 7 3700x soon.
Also is 3200Mhz the base speed or will i get lower speeds at stock. Cuz im not very informed about xmp profiles

Well any ram is technically enough for gaming at 1080p 60Hz honestly. 3200Mhz CL16 should work great with ryzen. 3600mhz would be better, but even on ryzen, the fps difference is usually less than 3 and just not noticeable in real gameplay.
As for XMP, XMP profile is just a profile for overclocking your ram which is preloaded onto the sticks. DDR4 runs at 2133Mhz, 2400Mhz, or 2666Mhz stock depending on the stick. Anything above is basically just a 2133 Mhz stick guaranteed to run at the advertised settings. It is tested to be stable, and all you do is go into bios and turn on XMP profile 1, which is the (OC'd) 3200Mhz. If you don't, it will set it to the stock speed of 2133Mhz.
