Sorry but I need to upgrade asap. current card doesnt cut it anymore. Does anybody know a website that has cheapest prices for video cards? Needs to be in the US. and how long does it normally take to ship? ohh and if you want to recommend a video card that would also be appreciated.

I've got a radeon 9550 , and i'm not having abit of trouble with it, runs everything smooth. Very little slow down on FPS when in harbor too. All graphic settings to max in all games. ONly Frames Per Second problem i had with it was BF'Vietnam, in certain lush jungle maps ; Where the FPS would dip to like 15-20.

go to www.newegg.com (http://www.newegg.com) cheapest prices on the net. they have radeon 9800pro for $129.00 with free shipping. I think they are selling geforce 6600gt for around $180.00.

I highly recomend this website to anyone shopping for computer parts. At the very least you can get an idea of the market rates so you don't get torpedoed at the check-out line.

With Newegg.com you usually have your purchase in 2 to 3 days. I have used them for several years with no problems.
