It seems to me, the only way to get decent priced hardware right now is to buy a full system from the like of scan and chilblast. Separately purchased GPU prices are just too high, as is DDR 4, although they do seem better priced as part of systems. This is an issie for upgrades but also if you suffer part failure. I have come to the conclusion I'm just going to wait until game performance becomes unenjoyable on my aged gen 2 core i5 2500k, DDR 3, gtx970 equiped system or it fails and then get a fully new system. Unless AMD can shake things up properly this year.
