Having a hard time trying to figure out which ram to use. 2x16GB 3400? 2x8? Would like speed at a reasonable price. $80-$150 maybe? Ryzen 5 2600.
Thanks

Since Ryzen CPUs need fast RAM to operate effectively, i'd go with 2x 8GB 3200 Mhz ones, e.g,

If you want more bling then RGB RAM,

32GB RAM (2x 16GB) is worthwhile only when you use your PC for production work (e.g 3D render). And then, 64GB would be preferred.

Also, there's no point getting faster RAM than 3200 Mhz, reason why:
