    re

    newegg.com
    It has a lot of post thanksgiving sales going right now. Noteably, $40 nec burner & $185 for 2gb of gskill extreme series.

    Zipzoomfly.com
    Has a xfx 7800gt for under 300 AR and it comes with COD2.

    Monarchcomputer.com
    another good site

    Those are the three sites I frequent most to buy comp parts.

    I hope that helps.

    if you are planning to do any gaming, don't expect spectacular results from any video card that has "LE" in it's name. but if you aren't a freak about fps that looks fine.
