I went to Compusa looking for this card Newegg.com - XFX HD-487A-ZWFC Radeon HD 4870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards
(the card you guys advised me to get)
And I was surprised to not see it. Only another 1gb version of the 4870 which was around 260 dollars. And besides that and a couple 3000 series cards, there were no other ati cards. Only geforce, which were extremely expensive.
The gts 250 was way over 200 dollars, and then they had my crappy 9600 gso for 80 dollars.
Compusa doesn't seem to be an option anymore, and I still am nervous about buying from newegg. If I did buy from newegg, are they fast with shipping? And is that card really the best option for me given my budget?
