Windows 7: Searching for good prices on video cards

Searching for good prices on video cards

Hey I want to thank everyone in advance for any type of input that you may give me.
Ok...I am going to be doing some pc upgrades here within the next week or so and as for now I have been looking for good prices on Geforce based video cards. I am looking for something along the lines of the 260 model and today while searching around the net I found an awesome deal that ended before I could do anything. I found a site Discount Computer Products and Electronics that was listing the XFX GEFORCE GTX 260 for $135 us dollars + like $13 ship. While I was taking a lunch break the dang thing ended! Man I am still kickin my butt for not jumping on it. Now I can not find anything close to that. If anyone has a favorite Etailer or anything that sells online with a price in that range would you please let me know. Any type of card that you would recommend that would be comparable to the 260 within that price range would be a consideration as well. I am not a fan of Radeon so please no Radeon items. As i stated I am going to be upgrading some of my pc components, so for now I am focusing on the video and power supply, then my memory.

You need a new CPU - that Allendale is a bottleneck as well as doubling the memory. I'd recommend the 4890 - Nvidia is rather pointless right now.
