Good deal, but no need for this much RAM for gaming, right?

Your correct, 8gb is good enough for most gamers. And very few AAA titles utilize over that amount. 16 GB is prob the most people would need unless they are using their computer for heavy workloads

Pretty much. Right now 32GB is overkill for basically anyone who's not a heavy VM user or editing high res (4K) video.

Some people will probably disagree, but as a gamer, 16GB is more than adequate for now and probably the next 4 years still.

Thanks OP, in for 1. Adding to the Microcenter 1700X deal for $140 (I added an ASRock Mobo bringing it to $200). Plan on using this for a home ESXi server to play around with.

I did. I know Ryzen is still pretty immature in the VM world, but the mobo I got supports IOMMU for doing PCI passthrough and all that jazz. Some people on Reddit posted the IOMMU groups for the ASRock AB350 Pro4, and it looks good for what I need. There was talk about an NPT issue, but I only saw it with people using other software like Proxmox.

Was one of the first adapters to Ryzen series. I am not using B-dies and works fine. I also have a 1700x on AB350 Pro4 w/ 64GB second server RAM like 70% full.

I already have 16gb. Would it make sense to add these for a total of 48gb memory?

What do you use your computer for? If you have to ask, the answer is probably not. Ram prices will drop, wait until you need it in a decade.

I'm not asking so much if I need it or not. I'm asking if this type of configuration, 8+8+16+16, would work

I'd say buckle up.. ESXI doesn't do passthrough very well with the Ryzen boards I used. Hell even my Asrock Tachi X399 and ASUS X399 Zenith passthrough breaks nearly immediately while attempting to pass a GPU. Usually crashes the whole system not just the VM.
