    Try Newegg
    I'm aware it doesn't ship outside of the country i believe, but if you have a trustable friend, you can get him to ship, most likely you will find a cheaper card here.

    And any mod reading this, please do not warn me for listing, because i am not sure if it is against rules to help a player buy computer equipment from a trusted site. If it is, i will edit my post, ty.

    and if you want a cheap card i suggest buying one from a Canadian webshop. i get my PS3 games there and with shipping its €20 cheaper then buying the game here (not to mention the stress driving through traffic to the store and fuel).

    so i'm pretty sure a gfx card would be around €40-80 cheaper if you buy it from a webshop that uses some sort of dollar(USD, CD). wich means you might be able to get a better one for the same price.

    Should I go for the:

    XFX GTX260 Black Edition, 896 MB GDDR3, 448 bit wide interface, GPU 666 MHz, memory speed 2300 MHz.

    Or

    XFX GF9800GTX+ 785M Black, 512 MB GDDR3, 256 bit wide interface, GPU 785 MHz, memory speed 2300 MHz

    The GF9800 is a little cheaper. As I said I have an Asus P5B motherboard, will both cards work with it? The GTX260 has an 448 bit wide interface, will that give any problems?

    One of the main things to do is go out and do some research on your own. Dont rely on stores for your information. Good place to start is reading reviews of cards and the specs they have.

    http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum/hardw...ard-review.html

    Now having said that, 4870, 9800GTX and x260 are similar in performance and similar in price. I would go with nVidia just because they have better drivers and software packages.
