Do I need to upgrade my memory for my new parts?

Yeah I realized it was DDR3.  What about this brand?  Comes in a 16GB kit.  And yes, I know how much I need quantity wise, just not sure at all about which kind.  Example, should I pay to buy the Corsair instead of this brand, etc.

Im not familiar with the brand though you can get a similar price:

In any case its up to you what you go with. Just make sure its DDR4 and again I would recommend 16GB minimum for your purposes.

I currently am using an i7-4790k with an ASUS B85M as the motherboard.  On the way I have an i7-9700k and an MSI Z370-A PRO motherboard coming.  I'm pretty sure I'm still on DDR3 memory from when I built this PC 4 years ago.  Im literally clueless when it comes to RAM memory and stuff.

 

Thanks.

No. Once again thats DDR3 RAM there. And you will probably want 16GB if you intend to stream and game.
