Welcome to the forums!!!

 

2666MHz RAM is a poor option to pick with a Ryzen 7 3700X. You should have at least went with 3200 CL16 kits. 

 

Overall, I think you could have used your money more wisely with different components and allocate to others.

Tbh you should've ordered some faster ram cause you'd get more performance from your 3700x

Thank you for the input it is appreciated. I have not started the build yet so I have time to change items. So you would recommend changing the Vengeance LPX to this 

Crucial Ballistix 3200 MHz DDR4 DRAM Desktop Gaming Memory Kit 32GB (16GBx2) CL16 ?

Was my exact thoughts, I would look into recommended ram speeds for the 3700x and try to match it up.

 

With your AIO and x570 motherboard, you have some room to OC the CPU and with the decent airflow you can pull through the case, some room to OC the GPU as well.

 

Only recommendation I would say is to get a big ass HDD and download every game you own, you most certainly have the rig to place it.

 

Welcome to PC gaming in all its glory.

Thank you everyone for your input, I do really appreciate it. I am just wondering aside from price is there a difference between: Crucial Ballistix 3200 MHz DDR4 DRAM Desktop Gaming Memory Kit 32GB (16GBx2) CL16 and 

CORSAIR Vengeance RGB Pro 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3600 (PC4 28800) Desktop Memory Model CMW16GX4M2K3600C16. 
I understand one is 3200MHz and the other is 3600 MHz, but is one brand better then the other ? 

I just want to get this right 🙂

Tbh once you get above 3200 the difference isn't as great as it is between 3200 vs 2666
