16 gb 2133 or 8gb 3200 mhz?

8GB is rather easily eaten up by even just games, excluding any sort of multilasking.

I have 16GB, and regularly use 12.

I would get the 3200mhz ram because Ryzen's performance depends mostly on ram speed.

Well you won't see any difference to be honest except the freaking benchmarks. Just 2400 is fine, also there is a 2x8gb oLoY 2666mhz for 69usd

8GB isn't really enough these days, get 16GB unless you plan on adding another 8 soon.

I have two Ryzen 1700 systems - 1 with 16gb 3200 MHz, and 1 with 16gb 2133 MHz ram in them.聽 The difference is nothing compared to running 2x8gb of dual channel RAM with Ryzen for 16gb as you will easily pass 8gb as a gamer.
