    More RAM

    Sure. Memory speeds impact Ryzen a lot, but do expect to see small to medium gains overall in most applications.

    More RAM

    They will run at their slowest EDIT: compatible speeds and timings, so not worth it unless you want to swap your existing 2400 kit too.

    More RAM

    I got my 2400 kit to 2800 without much effort. You should definitely try OCing before getting a faster kit. You want to run both kits or swapping one for the other?
  4. Third build simply because it has the extra cores, unless you wanna use Shadowplay. If yes, then first build.

    Advice for a strong streaming Pc

    I game and livestream at the same time on my R5 1600 rig. Which is why I asked about his OBS settings in the first place. More information = better recommendations = smart purchases = ??? = profit.

    I don't like recycled IP unless it's something seriously good.

    future gaming rig

    I did everything except PSU. It's a lot of reading. You'll be more frustrated than scared, since you'll be dealing with random frequent bluescreens, black screens, system freeze and restarts while you're fine tuning your OC to a stable state. Once you're there, the improvements speak for themselves. And you'd be happy you accomplished something amazing.

    Advice for a strong streaming Pc

    Is he encoding on CPU? That could be his problem. Before you dump money onto a new PC, you might want to seek advice about his OBS settings.

    future gaming rig

    You have to TRY to actually fry things if you're overclocking. Modern motherboards just won't let you POST with absurd numbers. Someone spooked you about overclocking recently? I've done mine from scratch, as a complete noob, without frying anything. EDIT: And that is my first and only PC I've built to date.

    Is a $250 "3080" even possible?

    Short answer: Why not. A little less short: As a consumer you shouldn't be hoping for higher prices on future products. That's plain retarded. Hell, if they offered a 3080 for three fiddy I'd take it without complaining.

    You can get away with a little less tbh if he's just playing a few demanding titles. Drop the cooler and the overkill PSU.

    future gaming rig

    Maybe not now, but later. With Ryzen you have the option. Your motherboard supports overclocking out of the box. FYI all Ryzen CPUs are unlocked.

    Planning first build and need advice

    I think the consensus is clear. GPU is pretty much how far you can afford.

    G-Sync on highish end graphics card?

    It's clear you're going to pay a lot in G-Sync tax. And you'll be stuck with one vendor as well. I wouldn't recommend it, especially if you have to pay THAT MUCH. 700W is more than enough to overclock all of your components simultaneously to a crisp.
