Also, is there something like too much RAM? Is 64GB too much?

My prospective config is 3700X/3900X with X570 MOBO, RX 5700 XT or RTX 2070 Super GPU
For gaming purposes, anything over 16GB is a waste for better performance. If you are running Virtual Machines or other things that need dedicated memory, then no.

Not if you play modded cities skylines.

Very good price. I bought mine about a year ago for $190. That was when the X570 and 3700X first came out.

Lol are you a power user with 150 tabs open? Windows 10 at idle with basic apps running should pull no more than 2gb memory. I have 16gb and only start to run into issues when I load a video editing program and I'm playing with green screening and tracking. Google chrome never eats memory lol
I just counted with Session Buddy extension -- I have 270 tabs opened. I got 64GB of RAM lol

You can't really have so much RAM that it will negatively affect performance, but you just won't end up using it and it would be a waste of money. For gaming, currently you don't need more than 16, and those who use more tend to be professionals (video editing/rendering, engineering software, etc).

It's not the same metric as say clock speed or IPC on a cpu, where bigger number nets in better performance. RAM is memory - like hard drive space, having more than you need doesn't make your computer faster.
Having more than you need WILL make your computer faster compared to having LESS than you need.

Depends on what you're doing. 32GB is more than enough for gaming -- probably won't even use 16GB today.

I am new to PC build; however, in my research I found that most people suggested to go with 3600 in combination with X570 MOBOs when they are paired with Ryzen 3700X or 3900X.
I am building one now and did not know this. I have 3000 in my list. Glad you mentioned this! Sincerely thank you

My suggestion is to not mix with slower ram and your best upgrade method is to buy all the ram you'll think you need at the same time from the same manufacturer and this best assures you won't run into issues. I'm not sure I'd upgrade to more ram a year or two out even from the same manufacturer as there's no assurance it will be made at the same factory under the same quality control.

For the most part, there's no such thing as too much RAM (if cost is ignored). One way to think of RAM is like a drinking glass. There won't be a difference if your glass is 1/4 full or 1/2 full. The glass has enough capacity to hold either scenario. If you have more water than your glass can hold, you run into problems (in the case of a computer, you'll start memory swapping which will severely degrade performance).

If you want to be technical, sometimes "less" RAM is better in some overclocking scenarios. These scenarios have less to do with overall capacity, though, and more to do with the greater likelihood of a weaker link in the chain running something like 4 dimms vs 2 dimms.

If I remember correctly, memory clock speed matters lot more than timings for Ryzen. Higher memory clock allows Infinity Fabric between core complexes to run at higher clock as well, improving performance lot better than better timing would. Usually just running the pre-loaded XMP profile is more than enough for Ryzen builds.
This isn't necessarily true. Slower timings can definitely make higher frequency RAM slower than lower frequency RAM with tighter timings.

As an example, DDR RAM at 3200 MHz CL14 will cycle at 8.75 nanoseconds while 4133 MHz at CL19 will cycle at 9.19 ns. Obviously that's not really different for practical uses, but in this case, the lower frequency RAM will be faster in spite of a much lower frequency.

You're right that higher frequency RAM allows the infinity fabric to clock higher, but the infinity fabric can also be the bottleneck. One of the important things is to match your infinity fabric frequency (usually called the fClock in BIOS) to your RAM frequency. So for 3200 MHz RAM, you want a fclock of 1600 MHz. Then you want as tight of timings as possible. I'd imagine most Matisse chips can get their fClock to 1800 MHz or higher (hence 3600 Mhz often being considered the sweet spot), but it's still a matter of luck of the draw and the silicon lottery.

As an examIe, I had a hell of a time figuring out why 3600 MHz CL16 RAM wouldn't run on my system using XMP. Unfortunately, I was unlucky and my 3800x infinity fabric won't clock higher than 1733 MHz with any stability. My RAM is quite good (I'm able to get CL12 at 3200 MHz, so I'm still getting the performance benefits in spite of my fClock limitation.

I'm guessing 99.9% of users will be fine with these XMP settings at 3200 Mhz, but XMP isn't foolproof. XMP really becomes a crapshoot on Matisse once you get above 3600 MHz.

All this probably sounds like a lot of talk for little practical difference, but memory frequency and timings actually do make a fairly sizeable framerate difference in some games. It can also reduce stutter and framerate drops in a number of circumstances where the CPU otherwise wasn't keeping up.

Sorry if I'm being overly pedantic. It look me a long time to figure out why XMP didn't work for me, and maybe I can save someone else some headache.

I only have 10 tabs open in Chrome right now, most of which are just email, ebay, slickdeals, etc. No youtube or anything and chrome is using 3.1gb
sounds like you may potentially have extensions that are eating up some memory. I just run adblock, and running 10x 4k Youtube videos eats up about 2.1gb.

3600 CL16 cheapest 16gb kit is $75-80 is G.Skill Ripjaws

CL18 is worse but $60
