    Should I switch out the AMD FX 8350 for a ryzen 5? It'll be used mostly for moderate gaming.

    It also seems like it's a different Motherboard socket (not sure if it's like intel where that makes them incompatible)

    Just a bit to the right, or was left...
    You can either go for 1400x or for 1500 if 1600x is to expensive
    Also, am4 socket for the ryzen, you need a b350 motherboard(x370 is high tear) msi b350 tomahawk is a good board, or asus b350 prime. For high tear, ASrock x370 Killer SLI or x370 Taichi
