i would like upgrade my ram from 16gigs to 32gigs.
Looking at these:

My current specs:
Windows 10 Pro 64bit
3.40 GHz AMD Ryzen 5 2600 Six-Core Processor
16.0 GB DDR4 Ram

MSI B450I GAMING PLUS AC (Socket AM4) Mini-ITX Motherboard

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 6GB GPU

32" 2560 x 1440 LCD monitor
Lazer3D LZ7 Mini-ITX Case

My motherboard says that the two RAM slots support up to 32 GB DDR4-RAM clocked at up to 2.933 MHz and this can be increased via OC to up to 3.200 MHz.

Am I on the right track with the 2x16gb-ddr4-pc4-25600c16-3200mhz-dual-channel-kit I've chosen?

Many thx

the first question is why?

32gb is a funny one, when your maxing out what the board or chip and cope with speeds will very a lot, and you may find yourself at SPD speeds.
only buy ram on the motherboards supported list.

If you had a zen 2/3 chips then 32gb at 3200mhz would generally not be an issue but it maybe for the 2600 which has a weaker memory controller, only one way to find out though.
