I currently have a 1x8G DDR4 UDIMM 2133 MHz stick and I want to buy another 8GB DDR4 stick. I have 3 options (unless you can suggest something better) and want to know which is best:

Get an identical (according to the part number for my RAM stick on the pcsupport.lenovo.com website) stick for £50 (ebay.to/2XPkfUz).

OR

Get a Crucial 8GB DDR4-3200 UDIMM stick (bit.ly/33ktjSB) which I have checked on crucial.com to be compatible with my PC and is faster and cheaper (£30) than the other option. I have seen that mixing RAM speeds will just cause the higher speed stick to underclock to the lower speed stick's speed, so not sure but it's still the cheapest option.

OR

Because I have seen that RAM speed matters a lot for PCs with a Ryzen CPU like mine, get any 2x8GB DDR4 3000MHz/3200MHz sticks and scrap my current stick.

My PC Specs
CPU: Ryzen 5 2600
Graphics Card: EVGA Nvidia GTX 1060 3GB SC
RAM: 1x8G DDR4 UDIMM 2133 MHz from a 510S-08ISH Lenovo PC.
Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-AX370M-Gaming 3 Socket AM4/X370/DDR4/S-ATA/ATX Motherboard - Black
PSU: Aerocool Integrator 500W
