Question Help with choosing memory please

Good evening everyone :)
... well, everyone with the time to read this anyway :P

I'm looking to build my next gaming machine and over the past 4 years the tech has changed an insane amount as was expected.

I'm after a little advice please.

I'm looking to put together the following build and need advice on the RAM side of it.

Ryzen 7 3700X
ASUS Prime X570-P

Now, the board lists the following as supported:

DDR4 - 2133
DDR4 - 2400
DDR4 - 2666
DDR4 - 2800
DDR4 - 2933
DDR4 - 3000
DDR4 - 3200
DDR4 - 3400(OC)
DDR4 - 3466(OC)
DDR4 - 3600(OC)
DDR4 - 3733(OC)
DDR4 - 3866(OC)
DDR4 - 4000(OC)
DDR4 - 4133(OC)
DDR4 - 4266(OC)
DDR4 - 4400(OC)

I'm looking at a couple of options. Mainly:
- Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO Black 32GB 3200 MHz AMD Ryzen Tuned DDR4 Memory Kit
-Corsair Dominator Platinum RGB 32GB 3200 MHz DDR4 Dual Channel Memory Kit

Main questions are:
1 - As a gamer, I understand future-proofing is usually a good idea.. but is it really worth getting that super-fancy-super-speedy RAM or am I good with 3200?
2 - After looking a little into the differences between Vengeance and Dominator, the main thing that stands out is the cooling ability of the Dominator. Does it really make that much of a difference? The Dom is 25% more expensive with the same performance specs.
3 - Is the "Ryzen Tuned" part a legit thing? or is this just a sales tactic?

Many thanks in advance for your time. Spending a lot of money on something I've been saving a long time for, so I really wanna get this right.

Bigglez :)
