Default www.iShopDirec.com good site?

I found a great price on the video card i am getting on this site.
But the site looks kinda, eh, scary, and not so trustworthy. has anyone bought from here before? do they ship fast(need by x mas)? Is it a secure website?

Go to newegg.com. Their shipping is really fast, and they're one of the, if not, the best site to buy computer parts from....if you live in the US.

Yeah, I was going to ask the same thing. If its a low-end card, then don't worry about the memory size, you'll never need that much memory on the settings you'll be running. If its a mid-range card, then I can't imagine any decent card that has 128MB of memory by default.

256MB is UTTERLY USELESS on a FX5200.
