Depends on how much you want/need. You could hold up to 4x8gb sticks in that motherboard, though 32 gb is excessive for most things today, over 8gb is not really necessary for gaming, but I said the same about 4gb a couple years ago and now I have 16gb myself, even though It's very rare I get to use 50% of that, but it's always good to have clearance.

Any of the aforementioned kits will work fine, and I do recommend getting a CL7 kit instead of a CL9 one.
