I already know the ddr4 is faster, but mybuild is strictly for streaming. I know gaming is all for clockspeed but productivity relies on cores/ threads. I really want to know will I be able to see the difference.

The memory controller will only support one, so there's no point in comparing. The DIMMs have different notches, so you can't install DDR3 in a slot that takes DDR4 and vice-versa.

Edit: To clarify, you can compare last-gen AMD CPUs using DDR3 to current models with DDR4, but memory is only one of many factors.
