16GB for gaming is 95% of the time more than enough, if you youtube some benchmark videos between 32 and 16 GB there is really no difference, 8 to 16GB there is a difference. Sometime for a reason i cannot explain is that i noticed in the benchmark videos 32gb ram situations slightly reduced CPU load. But as mentioned above if you need to sacrifice something for 32 i wouldn't. Personally i would choose better cooling or an NVME SSD over the 32 GB upgrade. however 32GB is heaps better if you are doing any photomanipulation, design work or video editing / rendering as i have noticed the programs park alot of what you are doing in the RAM until your done.
