It would probably work. There's a chance it might not. Sometimes RAM doesn't play nice together, especially if the RAM modules themselves are from a different manufacturer.

 

You could also buy the 2x16GB kit - assuming the pricing is such that it's cheaper per GB - and then add them to your system. In the end, you'd have 48GB of RAM if it works. And if it doesn't work, then you still get the 32GB of RAM you were originally planning on.

I have a PC I built last year it's a:

i5-10400f

B560m gigabyte auros pro

2x8 teamgroup ddr4 at 3600

MSI 6650xt

I was looking to upgrade my ram to 32 gigs so a 2x16 and was just going to get another kit of 3600mrz kit but I noticed the 4000 is a thing is it worth the upgrade or can my set up even support 4000 the price difference is 10 dollars?

Just get another kit of 2x8GB 3600 and enjoy life.  4x8GB will work fine.
