hi, im planning on building a new pc. the only two parts im not sure about are the ram and graphics card. my question about ram is if i should just go for ddr3 or ddr4. is ddr4 gonna cost a lot? s the difference really big?
and about the graphics card, im looking for something around(or under if that fits the procesor) 120 euros that fits the rest
the rest:
ASRock H81M-DGS = motherboard
HGST Travelstar 5K1000 = hardrive
intel® Core™ i5-4670K = cpu
Aerocool Strike-X EN53648 = power supply
i already have a case

ddr4 is not out yet, and will most likely be more expensive it we look at the history.

and, if you will go with ddr4 when it comes out, the board that you have does not support it.
and if this was for gaming, if it was me, i would invest more for the GPU, and not worry much about the ram. GPU will have a lot more impact in gaming, esp given that you have a nice cpu already

For DDR4 you'll need a new motherboard and processor and it's going to cost a lot, better to stick with DDR3. Is this build for gaming? Because when making a gaming build you should never spend more on the CPU than on the GPU. It's going to be a massive bottleneck, but this is the best GPU 120 € can buy: http://www.amazon.de/Asus-R7260X-DC2OC-2GD5-Grafikkarte...
