          EDIT: Reread your Post again. When you decide to purchase the Motherboard (Asus in this case), go to Asus Support for your model motherboard and take a look at the Motherboard's QVL list for RAM Memory for the type of Ryzen CPU/APU you are planning on installing and purchase one from the list. Also you may want to look at their other QVL list for Hardware for your motherboard. This way you can be sure you won't have any compatibility issues with RAM memory or hardware installed using your Ryzen CPU/APU.
