You want DDR5, it is much faster than DDR3, the standard for RAM in PC's has been DDR3 for a while, in the near future they will switch to DDR4, so consider the switch from 3 to 5 a 2 generation jump, much faster.

Same thing here, you should definitely get DDR5, it offers twice more bandwidth for the memory compared to DDR3.
