  1. Replacing/Upgrading the motherboard is tantamount to building a new system. There's very little reason to replace an old motherboard without going with newer components.
  2. Why are you considering a new motherboard?
  3. What is your current motherboard?

Yes, you should just get more DDR3 RAM. Upgrading to DDR4 means a new motherboard, a new processor, and a new install of Windows (with a new license to activate it). Your current motherboard supports up to 32GB of DDR3-1800 RAM. I would recommend, at a minimum, to REPLACE what you currently have, a 2x8GB kit of DDR3-1600 RAM. Something like this:

Yeah. These days, I wouldn't recommend running anything less than 8GB. The 16GB Kit I linked should resolve most of the RAM issues you're experiencing. BTW, it's only $15 more than the least expensive 8GB kit I'd recommend,
