For gaming, how big a difference is there between DDR3 and DDR4?
It's been nearly 10 years since I last built a gaming PC, but I figured now is a good time to dive back in and put together a gaming and VR-capable machine. I've decided on everything but the CPU and motherboard. The AMD FX-8350 looks like a great deal but I'm not sure how future proof it's going to be. As for Intel's new Skylake, the best my budget will allow is the i5 6500 or 6600. For my purposes I assume the 8350 and i5 would be about equal so it comes down to is memory performance. I know DDR4 has greater bandwidth and DDR3 generally has faster timings/lower latency, but what about real world performance? Is there a performance gap and if so, how large?
