AMD FX or Ryzen (go team red)

I just noticed that the new Star Wars Battlefront 2 minimum requirement for a CPU is AMD fx-350, and I am running a 6300. So I was wondering, should I upgrade to a higher tier in the fx series for around $100, or upgrade to Ryzen and have to purchase a new motherboard? Is it worth the additional $300 with motherboard included, or not?

Definitely worth it to go Ryzen.

You also need to buy DDR4 memory as well.

Upgrade. the FX is a dead platform now, so when you wanted to upgrade again in the future you would have to buy new RAM, CPU and Motherboard. Go with ryzen and stay up to date, DDR4 RAM is 109938467592387x better than DDR3

long term it will be a better choice to have gone ryzen now, as am4 will be staying here for a while, you might even get 12 core cpus eventually :) (with ryzen 2)

FX is at the end of its life and it isnt worth it. Ryzen is the way to go. The AM4 platform provides better upgradability and is newer.

If the CPU still serves you well, keep it. No point in upgrading if you aren't going to use the extra power. 

If you actually need the power, then yeah. Ryzen is completely worth it.
