Ive got some problems with prices. Right now, ive set on the fx 6300 and a Sapphire 7870 hd ghz edition. But, they are a little pricey. Is there anything i can do to drop the prices, or is there a different, cheaper graphics card that can perform about the same? I also am trying to make sure i don't have to upgrade for a few years.
