This is for my gaming rig

I going to upgrade the cpu in my Z370 chipset motherboard. Is it worth getting faster and/or more ram?

If what should I look at for around $150. Not looking to break the bang for marginal improvement.

Thank You
 
Best price-performance are 3200MHz kits at CL16 or CL14. Like this:

Since you're on intel the performance difference between 2666 and 3200 won't be as significant as it would be if you were using an AMD CPU, but you should still see difference in performance nonetheless, it can be a difference between 5-15 FPS depending on the game. So up to you if it's worth it.
