Need help choosing motherboard and ram

So lately I have been planning on upgrading my ancient 8320 because it doesn't cope well with streaming(thanks covid). I found out that aliexpress carries 3500x for 114euros and considering its performance is about 70% of 3600(209euros), it's a pretty good deal. 

 

I plan on upgrading to 5600 later down the road so I was thinking of getting B550 motherboard to avoid problems. 

 

So can you please suggest me a decent budget B550 board and 16gb ram kit? For mobo and ram I have ~230euro budget(260$)

1st off, I would not get the 3500x, its great and all, but your going to want those extra threads for streaming. Also for MoBo, go with the Asus B550F or B550A, they are amazing and around $150-$180 (sorry I don't know euros) Pretty much any RAM kit that runs at a decent speed is good enough, I recommend the Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO 16GB, or the Trident Z. If you dont want RGB, both of those come in non-RGB versions. Just make sure you get them with at least 3200 speed.

3500x is 2x faster than 8320 so I think I'll be ok. Also it's not a permanent solution but one that will do ok for now. 

 

Is there any specific ram kits that you would suggest? Cause vengeance ram still comes in a lot of different configurations. And I don't need RGB or just for the looks features.
