yeah i was already pretty sure of that but i only build my pc every two or three years so i need them to last for that long without getting outdated and also with all the games im playing too, but i main thing i'm stuck on is the graphic card as i heard that the radeon R9 270x is pretty much rebranded 7870? so im having trouble deciding

Well my budget is around 4000aed thats equal to 1000$, country is UAE
