    I have the following built.

    AMD Ryzen 7 2700X Processor
    ASRock MicroATX Motherboard (B450M PRO4)
    Corsair LPX 32GB (2x16GB) 3200MHz C16 DDR4 DRAM Memory Kit
    Seagate BarraCuda 2TB Internal Hard Drive HDD – 3.5 Inch SATA 6Gb/s 7200 RPM
    HP EX920 1 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive
    COUGAR MX330 Mid-Tower Case
    ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1060 DirectX 12 ZT-P10620A-10M 6GB 192-Bit GDDR5X PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready Video Card
    EVGA - 600W ATX 12V/EPS 12V 80 Plus Power Supply - Black
    LG Internal SATA 24x DVD CD +/-R & RW DL Disc Burner Re-Writer Drive OEM Bulk

    I am quite happy with it. I thought that I have enough of the ram in Adobe Premiere Pro and Media Encoder. But when I used After Effects, it used all of the 32gb. I guess it would not hurt if I add another 32gb to make it 64. And my children asked me what I want from Santa, I told them I want a couple of banks of memory.

    Should I stay with the ones I got, or is there something better, cheaper out there?

    If what you're using right now works, then I'd go with that if possible
    My mantra with pc part brands is, if it aint broke don't fix it :)
    I cheaped out on things like ram and power supplies before and came to regret it about a year later
    Edit: I'm talking brandwise

    You would really want to get another kit of your existing ram so there would be no issues with compatibility between the 2 kits.
     
    OmniDyne and Intel_man like this.
