    okay, i want to thank bigdawg and dwk and muchspl2 for their help and tips on that other thread that i made about what computer i should buy (which later turned into what parts i should buy to build it)

    i'm going to scrap that idea and put it on hold for now. right now, i just need a damn good cheap video card that has 100% support/compatibility for directx9.0 and opengl2.0 and preferebly 128 mb. any suggestions? my limit is 220 bucks canadian (yes, it must be under 220 with taxes included). i heard that the 9200se is good, i frankly don't have the money for 9700 pro (unless someone can direct me to a canadian site that does have it, or a site that ships to canada). any feedback would be greatly apperciated. thanks. ps, agp4x only, i know it's cutting it down, but i'm not even sure my old ass mobo supports agp4x. i'll check it in the morning and post back here and tell you if it does (i'm worried right now that all it supports is pci cards ). can anyone kindly tell me what kind of card a nvidia geforce2 mx 100/200 32 mb video card is (pci or agp)?? that would clear things up even more. i'm well aware that my comp would turn into a bottleneck (384 mb ram and a 1.2 ghz amd athon) if i got a 128 mb v/c.

    Which province are you living in? That'll certainly affect your tax rate, which is terribly unfortunate. Unless you live in Alberta, in which case, I'm jealous.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"

    $220 Canada is under $200 USD I believe. Which would still be enough for a 5900Se or 5900..but he cant find any stores that deliever to Canada. And I'm sure there prices will be higher then what we've been telling him.
