Talking about ram I am assuming. This entirely depends on your system ryzen 3000 series was particularly sensitive about its ram speed. Linus did a video on it if you are curious about ram speeds. 3200 is obviously better but depends on your budget and what system you are running.

The higher frequency is better, of course, but that depends on the chipset and the processor supporting that frequency.  Some Intel chipsets restrict your RAM to 2666 Mhz or the maximum officially supported by the  processor, which for some Intel processors is 2933 Mhz.

 

There's a small note here : the best performance is a combination of high frequency AND low timings.

Timings are how long it takes for the memory sticks to respond to commands or prepare the data and start transmitting data.  Higher frequency means data is transmitted from the ram or into the ram at a faster speed, but there's still some amount of time needed for ram to get ready or to find the data in the ram chips and start transmitting it - that's what the timings mean.

 

In applications that work mostly with big chunks of data (most of the games too), timings are less important   but in applications that work with lots of small chunks of data (think for example database servers that have to go to random rows of data or text in memory there timings are more important and frequency less.
