best deal on video card?



after buying command and conquer generals and finding out my video card (ATi Radeon 7000) is too freaking old, i'm thinking of getting a new one.

most likely a ATI Radeon 9500 128MB DDR. after reading all morning some reviews it looks that it is pretty similar if not better then the GForce 4400 and those go for another 100 bucks more. which i dont feel like paying.

the cheapest place i found the 9500 is Canadacomputers they have it there as $248 + tax = $285 or so

so anyone know any place to get them cheaper, or can anyone hook me up?

btw i should have my old one then for sale anyone interested? they still go for $100 at canadacomputers. i'll give it to you for $50 if i get the new one

Might be interested!

Is it the 32MB version or the 64 MB? (The R7000 you are selling)

Euro_E30 check which one u have and let me know i have a friend who might be interested in yours. and also how much u want for it? and it better be still working!

and i think i'm going for the new one from canadacomputers then.

btw moerom it's a 64 MB.

the card is fine if ur not a hardcore gamer. i just bought that brand new game and it's freaking laggy like hell. 1 sec in the game is like 5 sec on my watch.
