    1. Those 2 types of ram are different standard's one is ddr4 (the neweer standard) and the other is DDR3(older standard).
    2. For video editing more Ram and faster Ram better as it gives faster rendering times.
    3. Now if your laptop had ddr3 memory inside of it then you can only put ddr3 memory as you cannot fit ddr4 memory in a ddr3 slot and the same can be said vice-versa.
    So, if the motherboard of your laptop came with a ddr3 stich then go with the g.skill memory and if your motherboard came with a ddr4 stick than go with the corsair.
