will i notice a difference in upgrading ram?

ok this may be a stupid question lol ... but int stead of trying to replace existing ddr4 2400 ram with faster ram sticks if i just keep the same speed and just add to existing ram from 16 to 32 or even 64 will i even notice a difference? 

 

i'm going to change out my hard drive and add a m.2 ssd as well but i wanted to start with the ram first .... or should i not even bother because it wont make a difference and just upgrade to m.2 ?  ??

Upgrading from 16GB 2400 to 32GB 2400 will make no difference to performance at all. To be honest going from 2400 to 3200 would have so little impact you'd barely notice it.

 

Going from a mechanical HDD to an NVMe SSD will make your computer feel like a new beast entirely.

ok i told you all wrong i looked at the cards it says t hat are 8's =16 3000 so they are the little faster cards then what i thought 

so if i just up the ram by putting few more cards in at same speed it will do nothing  for me ? 

i'm better off just upgrading to m.2 ssd?

Upgrading the memory size won't impact performance. If you have a RYZEN processor, it will benefit from the higher speed, but keep in mind that timings are also important.

i'm thinking if  adding ram wont help me any then i'll just upgrade i i'll take the tb hard drive i have out and replace with much faster m.2 ssd and run it with the existing 256 ssd 

or could i just keep in the 2tb and run all 3?

i guess i could go with ram at 3200 but it wouldnt be much from 3000?
