Your first priority should be upgrading the GPU as that will make the biggest difference in gaming performance.

Not enough Ram to be future proof. You need at least 32 gigs.

Based on my reading through articles 16GB is more than enough for gaming purpose. I don't do any other memory intensive work. My thoughts were I should be able to add later. Let me know what you think

You're correct, 16GB is more than enough for just about any game. Congratulations on the purchase.

Gigabyte Aorus B550 master - 26.5K o_O ,could have purchased x570 tomahawk wifi and saved 4k
I hate active cooled chipset motherboard due to prior bad experience. This one satisfied my requirement of PCIe 4.0 for future Graphic card upgrades, multiple PCIe 4.0 slots for M.2 storage combined with top of the line networking capabilities.
