For 128GB memory, I would recommend going with the Memory optimized Droplets.

Also, what I usually do before moving to a new server is to check my current resources utilization and make sure that I actually need all of the resources. For example, if your current server is only utilized at 20%, you might have a chance to move to a bit smaller server and then upgrade later on if you need to.
