2X8 should be plenty in terms of temp storage space and gives you a boost due to dual channel. Are the speeds similar between the 16GB stick vs the 8GB sticks? It shouldn't matter as much with Intel, but AMD Ryzen craves faster RAM.
Great remark, seeing as the old cards are ddr3 it might be the way to go in the end

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.
