Hello everyone. I'm planning to upgrade my pc build from 8(2x4)gb 2133 MhzRAM to 16 gb, and I have 2 questions.
First of all, I use the PC for gaming, do you think the RAM upgrade it's worth?
and Second, since I have a Ryzen 2600x, how much difference in performance can be between a 2133 Mhz and 3200 Mhz RAM.

Hope you guys can help me with that
 
Combining RAM that wasn't purchased together isn't guaranteed to work, so there is a small possibility you'd have compatibility issues adding a 2nd 8GB stick to your current one.

I'd vote for buying a new 2x8 GB 3200 MHz kit.

+ 1 on getting a 3200 MHz kit that is on your MBs QVL list or shown as compatible with your MB on the RAM manufacturers sire.

I have 16 3200 G.Skill TridentZ kit that I run at 3400 MHz and it does make a difference.
My OC'd 2600 with OC'd ram preforms as well or better than a stock 2600x on every benchmark I have run.
