Based on an actual conversation. I had a friend who was fairly new to PC building.

@Plasmarift: In case you want explanation, I could try:
DDR4 RAM memory (which could be thought as the next step after DDR3) came out in 2014, and DDR5 is expected for this year;
You cannot interchange DDR3 and DDR4 modules, so you need to choose which one you want, you cannot change DDR3 to DDR4 later;
DDR4 use 1.2V while DDR3 1.5V, which means less electricity and heat, which is noticeable if you have server farm;
DDR4 have slightly better performance (depends on what you do with it), but you can get more than 8GB modules, allowing you to get 128GB of memory;
DDR3 was cheaper, but today you can get DDR4 at the same price;So if you use DDR3 you live in past, not Present Tense ...I mean time

@Plasmarift: it’s also a matter of compatibility. CPUs and motherboards are designed for specific DDRs. Using a DDR3 will mean your whole system is somewhat outdated or limited to how you can improve it.
