Ok well i think i've found one on Newegg which i've shopped for many other things before and never have had a problem with them...But i'm wondering if this memory card will work for some of the small games that i have and pretty much only want them for is Americas Army, and Guild Wars. It has alot of good reviews it looks like so plz some say if it's good enough for just a small gammer/homework computer.
