What is the main thing i will need for gaming ?
Is there any problem to have Old version of ram ?
Games System Requirements don't told us what port we will use (ddr-2/3/4). They only ask for a few amount of GB.
Is there any problem or hamper our gaming performance because of back version of RAM ?

To help answer you questions

What is the main thing i will need for gaming ?
Skill... lol well A decent GFX (Graphics Card)

Is there any problem to have Old version of ram ?
No as long as it is compatible with any New Motherboard you plan to upgrade to.

Games System Requirements don't told us what port we will use (ddr-2/3/4). They only ask for a few amount of GB.
Games just need X amount of Ram to function smoothly - you can usually run games on lower ram but you will experience Lag as game caches to Slow HDD

Is there any problem or hamper our gaming performance because of back version of RAM ?
Typically no but some cheap ram doesn't scale backwards very well, your more likely to experience voltage issues
1 Single DDR4 will likely be out preformed by 2 DDR3 in Dual Channel...

For Gaming the Order of Hardware is typically

GFX
CPU
Monitor Size
MB
RAM
Mouse
HDD/SSD
Appropriate PSU to power it all

Ram is a small but important Factor in Gaming - Most Typical gamers will run 2x4GB DDR3 ram in dual channel on a 64Bit OS

Hope this helps you better understand Ram requirements for Games
