I want to spend under $300, i need more ram i would have to get a new a motherboard, then also a new cpu.

Your FX 6300 will last you for 3 years, 2 months, 4 days, 6 hours and 12 minutes.

That motherboard isn't too bad, but you won't be able to overclock on it, which you would have been able to with mine, plus it's higher quality overall, even though the features of both of those are pretty close.
