Default Old question with a twist

Alright my rig is in my sig, and I have about $200 and want a new video card.

I have cash only and would like to go buy one from a store.

I live in Fishers, Indiana and have no good stores to go to for computer parts. Do any of you guys know where to go near me for a good video card for that price?

Any local BestBuy's? Evga is now selling their cards there! Grant it, probably exceptionally overpriced, but still good. 200 will probably get you a GTS 250 or GTX 260 core216 at BestBuy.

A 260 would sync in pretty well with a C2Q.

What size is your monitor?

A GTX 260 will run you over $200 at best Buy. At mine, it was like $240 last time I checked. The 192 sp model.

Why can't you buy it from newegg or somewhere similar?

You can always get a visa gift card at walgreens for a few dollars. An MSI R5770 Hawk would be epic if you could get one.

He doesn't have access to a credit/debit card, is my assumption. I just pay cash to whoever I ask to do my purchase. And of course, they make a little off the top.

I can go to CVS and get a Visa card, and go buy that. I will try that later this week, thanks guys.

only problem is that it has two HDMI and one normal video hookup. That wouldn't work for me.

That is actually displayport, HDMI, and DVI.

Get a HDMI-DVI cable and all will be good. Should run you less than $10.

EDIT: It might come with an adapter. I'll check into that one.

EDIT2: It does. You're good.
