PSU- Corsair VS550
RAM- F4-3200C16D-16GTZRX or F4-3200C14D-16GFX other Cheaper then this.

Please Help me choosing the RAM, its very confusing.

i did some research on my own gskill official says "F4-3200C16D-16GTZRX" is compatible with Both b450 Mobo i have mentioned but the official site doesn't show this ram.

Help Please!!!

Please gimme opinions for what to buy and what not to for all parts.

what is the budget?

if it is 5-7 years old pc I suspect that the ram is DDR3 so you can't reuse that part.
for the ram you want fast ram like 3200 mhz cl16 is pretty good choose.

The x is: it's optimized for ryzen.
It is a good choice as long as you have also checked the mobo qvl's
The gtzr is still a very good choice also.


Seconded on the psu.
Also you have not listed a gpu so psu requirements need to be meet for a gpu choice.
The rm series psu has a 12 yr warranty.

At the current prices of ram try even if it is 2x4 for 8gb.
I paid $229.00 in late september 2018 for 16gb 2x8 3200 cl14 g.skill flare x it's now $149.00 @ the exact same store.
The system will run better in dual channel mode.

Switch out the PSU right now because the VS series (both grey and orange units) are horrible and will most likely fail within a short amount of time, do not cheap out on it.

Unless you are able to verify which BIOS the motherboard will come with, those boards may not support Ryzen 3000 without an update (which would require an older CPU). The motherboard I linked to has a feature that allows you to update without a supported CPU.

The 3000 MHz kit I found seems to be a fair bit cheaper than any 3200 MHz kits. Performance difference won't be that much.

Unless that PSU is the MWE Gold version, it's not very good. As has been said already in this thread repeatedly, don't cheap out on your PSU. Step down from a 3600X to a 3600 if you need to in order to get a good PSU within your budget.
