Default Needa New Video Card! Help!

Alright guys I need a good video card that's cheap and in-stores.

Does anyone know where I can get some coupons or discounts on a good video card.

Thanks.

Newegg.com - Foxconn FV-N79SM2D2-OC GeForce 7900GS 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 SLI Supported Video Card - Retail

its not $150 but its still a great card, maybe an x1950xt if you can find one.. or contact AMD GT Player from this forum, he's selling a 7950gt for $100

a Gddr3 256mb is better than a 512mb gddr2, so see if you can get more information about that card's specs

if that card is a gddr3 512mb, you probably won't need it unless you play high resolutions, but the 8600gt stinks in most games at high resolutions anyways...

but I recommend you go PM AMD GT Player because hte 7950gt trounces the 8600gt, and you can get it for only $10 than the 8600GT
