does newegg not work in canada?
If in fact you do actually need a card, the lowest i would go for that is the 7600. 8600 is almost the same price and i can tell you first hand that it runs COD4 like a champ, with GDDR3 and 512MB version anyway. was 100 bucks on newegg.

The card i have is eVGA. But newegg is having a sweet special on MSI 8600 cards right now. got my girlfriend a 256MB GDDR3 8600GT for $85 out the gate, with a $20 rebate and a $50 game(the witcher). So you effectively get the card for 15 bucks

Hi Fasih
I bought a Sony computer 4 years ago and it came with an ATI 9200. It's an old card, by computer standards it's an antique. I replaced it with an ATI 1950, 512 MB because of substandard performance with my flight simulator program. The 9200 is better then the integrated video I gave mine to a friend who only had that on his PC. If you still want a 9200 you can get a better price for it on E-bay but if you want to see an improvement after an upgrade
you're going to have to spend a little more money, take "SMURFGODS" suggestion.

That card probably won't play Cod4 well or at all. That website seems kind of lame, they have mostly only old video cards and nothing good for newer ones. Are you sure your computer uses pcie, and not agp?

Newegg doesn't ship to Canada, I wish they did! You can also order from www.tigerdirect.ca there good but there prices aren't always the best like Newegg. For videocards you c ould also check ebay if you want, I got my ATi X1950 Pro off there for 150$ when it was 200 or more at stores and on Tigerdirect ( Even though Canadian curency is like the same as American currency, we still pay way more for everything )

If you buy Ebay just make sure the person has good feedback and read the descriptions!

I can't recommend buying anything from E-bay. The products may be used, abused and put up wet. You don't know what your getting and if it fails your better off burning the 100.00 bill then trying to get your money back. I have in the past bought one motherboard and had great results, but theres just to much to chance. You can try Amazon.com they have retailers that ship to Canada. We have many forum members that live outside the US that can recommend reputable retailers.
