Where to buy video card?

Where are you guys buying your video cards these days? I need a dual head with 128/256mb. Pretty much just to watch the security cameras which have a FPS of 240.
Any brands to stay away from?

TIA.

Fry's. Best selection and price over everyone else locally.

Lol, nothing special, just a 256 dual head GeForce card. Definitely not on the level most of you guys have.

Just needed something to run the 19s and the cameras. Only type of gaming it will see is flash stuff that the boys play...
