Hi I would like to know if this if future proof and if it is enough to run all games at high frame rates at 2400 mhz. And also is it made with b die??? Also, I have an x570 motherboard with a 2700x CPU. Or should I go with xpg 3600 mhz ram

Hi thank you for replying to me; I have a 2700x CPU and an x570 motherboard I would like to future proof my ram for future games and faster productivity.
What country are you in? Look for 2x8 GB (or possibly 2x16GB, if you have applications that need lots of memory) of 3200 MHz RAM, with a CAS latency (CL) of 16 or lower. You probably won't be able to run 3600 MHz RAM with your CPU. You could get it anyway and run it at a lower speed if 3600 doesn't work, but if the RAM doesn't include extra XMP profile(s) at frequencies lower than 3600 then you'll have to set the frequency/timings manually.

Plus I would like to swap out the CPU later on to a 2nd gen ryzen CPU.
The 2700X is a 2nd gen Ryzen CPU, and is the best one there is. If you're referring to "Zen 2", that actually corresponds to 3rd gen Ryzen (Ryzen 3000).

2400 is slow. what the rest of the system spec?
what are you using the system for?

Ok Thanks a lot buddy you've answered my question very thoroughly and helped me decide to go with 3200 or 3600. One last question should I go with 4 8's or 2 16's or ram for best performance.?

There shouldn't really be any difference between 4x8 and 2x16, but I'd go with the latter personally.

3600 MHz would perform slightly better if you end up getting a 3rd gen Ryzen CPU in the future, but it's not a big difference. If the prices are similar and you don't mind having to do a bit of tweaking of the memory settings then go with 3600, otherwise just get 3200. You'll probably never notice the difference anyway.
