I'm just looking for an affordable quantum physics textbook, I am not quite a beginner at this, maybe intermediate if you call it.

I recommend Griffiths, it's very readable. If you need cheap, search the online stores for a second hand paperback, or talk about acquisitions with your librarian. Or if your situation is really extreme, perhaps write to the author for blessing to just download it in djvu form from somewhere with weak intellectual protectionism law. My point is that in the long run we're probably all better off with you getting a well-recognised modern textbook rather than trying to make do with perhaps worse information.

Can you define this more precisely? What math and physics do you know already?

Can't give you any specifics, but look around for the international versions of texts. Black and white, and it's printed like a phone book, but eveything's there, and they're far cheaper than the normal editions.

Amazon's good, but check out Alibris as well, people sell used textbooks on there for pennies on the dollar.

Park's QM book is pretty cheap. The Dover reissue seems to have driven down the used hardcover price as well.
