Hi,
i have a old pc that i was using as college student and i was planning to upgrade it to Ryzen but currently i have very limited budget (married & baby on the way).

here's my current setup:
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 965 BE
Mb: Asrock 870 Extreme 3 (Rev. 1)
GPU: MSI GTX 660 Twin Frozr
RAM: G.SKILL 2x4GB
PSU: OCZ 550W

Nowadays, i'm play it casually like The Sims 4 (which run perfectly now) and Story of Season. But i believe my CPU quite older than story of season requirement (maybe it can run in low, but who knows?).

Should i going for Vishera line or be patience for Ryzen?
It's obviously going for Ryzen is better. but is Vishera upgrade worth it?

Vishera really wouldnt give you enough performance to warrant the upgrade from your 965 (I had one too, it was a great processor).
Most, if not all, FX series processors will have similar IPC to your current model.
Yes, finally i can clear my doubt.
i was afraid this small upgrade will do nothing significant to system.

I guess i will wait for Ryzen upgrade.

thank you.
