Exclamation Budget Buying - Video Card

Yup, I'm back! I'm still on that really strict budget I talked about in my last post... so without any further hesitation:

I'm looking to buy a video card now. It has to be a PCI Express with at least 256 MB...

This is what I found - http://www.pwv4.magicmicro.com/pmore...20to%20Enlarge

Is it any good? Does anyone else have any cards they found? Thanks for all the help! Remember - I have about $85 bucks to work with here! x.x

Take a look at this link:

For the money you have to spend it seems good. The thing is I never heard of that online dealer you have linked to. Zipzoomfly has an Asus Radeon PCI-E 550 for $79.99 but unfortunately it is backordered. The thing I like about Zip is that so many of their products are 2 Day Free shipping by Fed Ex.

If you are ordering from Newegg don't forget to figure in extra money for shipping. perhaps Zipzoomfly has it but with 2 day free shipping. But I agree with Mr.Zucchinihead, what he linked you to is a much better card.

x.x Yikes. That IS a really good card - but the thing is - I'm all ready short about 20 bucks as it is. I basicly only have $75 to get a card with... I'll be sure to check out that card as soon as Best Buy hires me though ^.- (lol)
