Hello i am going to upgrade my computer with a Ryzen 3700x and X570 motherboard coming from a 5930K X99.
I have 2 questions :
  1. I have a 2TB SATA SSD Samsung EVO , is it worth upgrading to a 1 or 2 TB Gen 4 NVMe SSD considering it has much faster read/write speeds? I will be using my pc alomost entirely for gaming so will the load times be much different loading games or starting windows with my "old" SATA SSD vs the Gen 4 NVME SSD?
  2. I have just ordered 2x16GB 3200Mhz CL16 memory. The recommended memory speeds is 3200 CL14 or 3600 CL16. Wil this be noticable when gaming and be a too great performance hit versus 3200CL14 or 3600 CL16 memory when gaming?
Thank in advance.
 
I am a pretty heavy gamer and I use SATA SSDs and I have though about what you are thinking about....and I think the load times will be shorter with the NVMe.....however....I think we are talking just "seconds" here.....and I'm not going to go through the cost and the trouble for "seconds".....but that's subjective.

....and as far as the memory....I don't think it will be noticeable when gaming. Both of those memory setups are extremely fast.

I have only 3200cl16 whereas the recommendation for this speed is cl14 with the ryzen 3xxx cpus. Will 3200cl16 be much slower or more laggy in gaming then the recommended 3200cl14?
