Thank You very much i have cancelled my order and will buy this now instead <3 right now i have 1200MHz of memory, is this the reason my pc is very slow and can only handle 1-2 programs at a time?In most higher spec games im getting good fps then every 2 seconds or so i get stutter or my screen freezes for like half a second?

Yes, from what you did tell us, always read Ram with x2 on it, example if its 1200 then its a 2400Mhz (since its DDR, everything doubled, but if the number is 2000+ than pretty sure it is doubled, if its a DDR4). Ryzen Running very great at 3200Mhz, you wont regret ;D

I found out earlier that one of my ram slots is faulty. Would i be able to get away with just a single 16gb stick at 3000MHz?

Yes but a couple of issues

1. If you bought two sticks of ram separately instead of in a dual channel set there could be compatibility issues with each other

2. 2400mhz RAM is quite slow for Ryzen, 3200mhz is considered minimum with 3600mhz being optimal. Your motherboard supports up to 3200mhz.

This is what you should have bought https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/p6RFf7/corsair-memory-cmk16gx4m2b3200c16

Better run your ram on single slot now, and invest on buying new motherboard, you dont want your ryzen on a single slot for too long, worst performance
