Do you have that CPU now? If so, are you looking for a motherboard to use with it?

If you don't have that CPU, don't buy it. It runs very hot, uses a lot of power, and is known for having stability issues.

Please clarify.

Right now it is at 0gb. The old memory went bad earlier this year. Originally I was running 16gb but since I have to replace the memory I figured I'd go all the way to 32gb As far as spending money on it not being a good idea, I don't see why, it worked splendidly until this happened.
 
If you go to a ram vendor web site, you can access their ram selection app.
Most ram vendors have them.
Enter your motherboard and you will get a list of supported ram kits.

As to spending on a FX system, I suppose you could.
But, you will be buying ddr3 ram which is no longer used in current gen processors.
The FX cores are relatively slow, at least for a gamer.
If you are running batch apps, a FX-9590 with 8 threads, that is a much better case.
