DDR2 vs DDR3 vs DDR4

What is the main thing i will need for gaming ?
Is there any problem to have Old version of ram ?
Games System Requirements don't told us what port we will use (ddr-2/3/4). They only ask for a few amount of GB.
Is there any problem or hamper our gaming performance because of back version of RAM ?

  1. In gaming there is not really a big difference between DDR2 and DDR3 as long its the same capacity.

    What is the main thing i will need for gaming ?
    Skill... lol well A decent GFX (Graphics Card)

    Is there any problem to have Old version of ram ?
    No as long as it is compatible with any New Motherboard you plan to upgrade to.

    Games System Requirements don't told us what port we will use (ddr-2/3/4). They only ask for a few amount of GB.
    Games just need X amount of Ram to function smoothly - you can usually run games on lower ram but you will experience Lag as game caches to Slow HDD

    Is there any problem or hamper our gaming performance because of back version of RAM ?
    Typically no but some cheap ram doesn't scale backwards very well, your more likely to experience voltage issues
    1 Single DDR4 will likely be out preformed by 2 DDR3 in Dual Channel...

    For Gaming the Order of Hardware is typically

    GFX
    CPU
    Monitor Size
    MB
    RAM
    Mouse
    HDD/SSD
    Appropriate PSU to power it all

    Ram is a small but important Factor in Gaming - Most Typical gamers will run 2x4GB DDR3 ram in dual channel on a 64Bit OS

    Hope this helps you better understand Ram requirements for Games
  3. small change to your list
    GFX
    CPU
    Appropriate PSU to power it all(safeguards everything)
    Monitor Size
    MB
    RAM
    Mouse
    HDD/SSD
