Hello good day.

I am planning on upgrading my:

KINGSTON(8ATF1G64AZ-2G6E1) 2x8 (16GB) 2400MHZ CL17

INTO:

G .SKILL TRIDENT Z RGB (F4-3200C16D-16GTZR) 2x8 (16GB) 3200MHZ CL16

The price of the G.SKILL ram is 101.79 DOLLARS.

Is it worth it? Will it stabilize my games because I occasionally have stutters and I thought of upgrading my ram since Ryzen CPUs are ram speed dependent.

I do a lot of esports gaming like: Rainbow Six Siege, CS:GO , Apex Legends and ETC.
I also play a lot of triple A games. Currently that I am focusing on is the Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.


My specs:
PSU: ASUS TUF 650W BRONZE 80+
GPU: RTX 3070 PALIT JETSTREAM
CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3500X
RAM: 2x8 16 GB KINGSTON (8ATF1G64AZ-2G631) 2400MHZ CL17
STORAGE: Colorful SL500 1 TERA SSD and 500 GBST3500413AS HDD
MOTHERBOARD: PRIME ASUS A320M-K
 
I would say yes.
Especially if you decide to upgrade your cpu in the future.
Your motherboard will accept it, it supports 3200mhz with Ryzen 1st,2nd and 3rd gen cpu's.
You have a 3rd gen cpu.

definitely, 33% better performance in RAM is noticeable.

Thank you. I struck a deal and got the Trident Z NEO 3200 MHZ CL16 for only 120 USD.
