What system is this for? List motherboard and cpu please. Include as well how many memory sticks is 16GB.

What uses? Games? Multitasking?

Is 32GB you want made up of 2x 16GB or 4x 8GB?

Hi there and thanks for reply my current system is... Moetherboard: Asus maximus hero VIII chipset Z170
CPU: I7700K
GPU: GTX 1070 OC

Right know the memory ram i have is dual channel 2x8 gb... And the memory in question is this one ( https://www.corsair.com/ww/en/Categories/Products/Memory/VENGEANCE-LPX/p/CMK32GX4M2A2666C16 )... I just ask because usualy this type of memory costs around 150€... Soo i dont dont if it id a good bundle in terms of updating... Because my intencion is to get next year a new motherboard... And on this year try to go to one 2070

Your motherboard will have no problems running 2x 16GB 2666. 32GB is a good amount these days.
Once again thanks for reply, and sorry to ask this but do you think this Ram on 2666 Mhz will hold how many years? I know for the price is a good deal.. but what i don't want is buy this one for the price and after i update my mobo, cpu and Gpu, get some botleneck from memory...

If were to run a Ryzen system or 9/10th gen Intel would want 3200+ ram, especially for Ryzen. Intel doesn't really matter AS much, 2666 will last quite some time. Heck, 1600MHz is keeping up and when did it release, too long ago.

Thanks for the tip friend, and for all the help, best regards
 
Intel does not depend much on ram speed.
You will not notice any difference between 2400 and 2666 speed.

If you use apps that can use ram for workspace like photoshop, then add more ram.

Otherwise,
Take a look at your task manager hard page fault statistics.
If it is anything above zero, you would probably benefit from more ram.

Then, long term DDR5 is on the horizon. Not for your motherboard, but for upcoming future motherboards.
No such thing as "future proofing" on computers these days.

There are probably better ways to spend your budget.
