    Don't worry about DDR4 and you cant get it anyway without replacing your CPU/RAM/Mobo. DDR4 RAM is not that big of a boost anyway as higher RAM speeds increases latency. You don't need more than 16gb of RAM. There are no games that require more than 16gb.

    If you are wanting to upgrade, consider getting a SSD. It will make your boot and load times very fast. It wont give you higher fps, but it will make the PC experience much better.

    Or you could look at a used i7 4790. Given the prices of GPUs, it may be better to wait till next year and hope the mining craze ends.

  5. Tiny speed diff between ddr3 and ddr4. Your CPU is still decent, a cheaper upgrade is to get 16gb ddr3. 8gb is already enough, and usually we don't need more than 16gb :) If you upgrade CPU/MB/RAM, coffee lake is the only thing from Intel worth getting.
