And Ryzen 7 3800x, RTX 2060

Practically none of today's games benefit from having more than 16GB of RAM, at least if you're not multitasking with web browsers open and videos playing and such while gaming. So, 2x8GB of DDR4-3200 will almost certainly be the better option currently. Otherwise, the additional, slower RAM will just be sitting there not doing anything but slowing down the RAM that's actually getting used, and potentially causing instability due to differences between the RAM modules. I suspect there will be more benefit from having more than 16GB sometime in the coming years, but even then, you would probably want a matched set of identical RAM modules at the higher speed totalling 32GB for optimal performance and stability.
