DDR4 3200 or 3466

Can't decide which will benefit me more and/or if I will need to tweek the 3466 compared to just XMP'ing the 3200.

Intel i7-8700k on the ASUS APEX X board for mainly gaming at an over clock of 5 ghz. But will do some light video/photo editing with Adobe Photoshop Elements & Premiere.

Also, any much difference between the Corsair Dominators or their Vengeance ram?

Doesn't matter much. Price is your biggest difference maker here. If it's like $20 more sure why not but anything more than that? I'd get 3200.

Dom's are overrated imo for the cost. I'd rather get a set of the Vengeance or HyperX stuff

Getting high-speed memory will always offer diminishing returns. 3200MHz is a sweet spot ATM, as it is still plenty fast and offers reasonable pricing (in today's market...).

What is the price difference between the two kits you are considering?

TTL always says 3200 is the sweet spot just like NBD and WYP said too
