most of my use is gaming
but i cant decide what is better for my pc components
the Adata XPG SX8200 Pro 256gb in the same price of extra 8 gb ram
 
SSD won't really make a difference in gaming performance, just a convenience thing or faster load times/more responsive system. Extra RAM could make a noticeable difference is some games.

How much would an MX500 SSD cost compared to the XPG? You're going to see little to no difference between SATA and NVMe SSD.

any more opinions plz ?
The problem is with adding more memory is that even if you buy an identical kit there's a small chance the system won't boot or won't be stable. As long as your not running multiple apps in the background, trying to stream or gaming with websites open then 8gb is sufficient.

I'd go SSD now and when you do make the upgrade to 16gb sell your current kit and buy a 2x8gb kit so you don't need to worry about potential issues.

why without a doubt? I run the witcher 3 with discord tabs open 60+ fps ultra on 8gb ram?
It is all up to op.
Because....if he primarily uses it for gaming and doesnt have storage capacity issues, adding an SSD will do jack **for him performancewise? Where as going from 8-16GB ram overall will increase performance and is an investment that will pay off in the future with gaming,

You are correct, the SSD will not show a performance difference with multiple applications, but the ram sure will, especially tuned sets of high bandwidth ram.
