Windows 7: Radeon R7 250X availability?

Radeon R7 250X availability?

I'm interested in the Radeon R7 250X which was supposedly released three days ago, but I'm not seeing it online. Does anyone know of a source? Also I'm using two monitors which are connected via DVI. If I get the 250X I'll have to use the VGA port on the card for one monitor. Is that likely to effect image quality? Is there any downside? TIA

I have an R7 240x and have two monitors, one through DVI-D and the other through VGA -- and the VGA-driven monitor has the same picture quality as the other monitor.

I do the same with one of my PCs and the quality is the same on both monitors.

Here you go:

Thanks for the Newegg link. That's the first unit that's clearly the right thing. Unfortunately at $120 it's too close to the 260X. The 250X was announced as a <$100 card. This one on Amazon is the right price but it's not clear it's the right part - the packaging says 250 not 250X in the screenshots:

Amazon.com: Diamond Radeon R7-250X Boost Overclocked 1GB DDR5 PCIE: Computers & Accessories

I expect more of them will be showing up soon.

Edit: Here's another one at a better price...

Newegg must have just added the ASUS card. There was only the XFX card when I posted the link. It's good to see that more are coming out.

I don't think that Amazon card is the 250X. Unless they're using old graphics, nothing has an "X" on it.

I decided to get an R7 260X which was on sale last week. It installed easily and is working fine. Now I just need a recommendation for a good freeware/demo "shooter" that I can test it with I used to be a big fan of Doom 3 and Quake 4, but I haven't been playing shooters for a long time and don't know what's currently popular. TIA

Does anyone know whether Windows 7 will still be available in the stores for purchase once Windows 8 is officially launched on Oct 25th? Perhaps someone can recall what happened to Vista when Win 7 launched. If Win 7 is going to be pulled from the shelves, then maybe it's time to stock up...
