Default Buying List - PCI Video Card & Wireless Router

Original thread:
Alright, just to clarify, looking for a PCI and NOT PCI-E. If I wanted a PCI-E, I would've stated as such. You may ask, "Why PCI?". This is simple, cause the motherboard (*Cough* HP crap *Cough*) doesn't have a PCI-E nor AGP slot and the purchase of a new motherboard for such slots would be a waste of money along with video card (as well as an expected bottleneck).

Currently it's using a Radeon 9250 PCI, but this card lacks pixel shader 2.0 and such is fairly disappointing. I guess what i'm looking for could possibly be a Nvidia 5200 FX, Nvidia 6200 LE, Nvidia8400 GS or ATI Radeon 2600 Pro if any of them are priced reasonably and fairly from their use.

If you have something that fits what I want, just post here cause I find that PMs are more of an annoyance than actually helpful.

Addition after consolidation:
Okay, still looking for the PCI Video Card, but now i'm looking for a wireless router. I'm hoping to find a cheap, used (not excessively overused) one, been eyeing for a WRT54GL so I can flash with Tomato, but if there's a cheaper, yet still reliable one, i'm open to it.

What i'm looking for in the wireless routers are:
- Reliable
- All original parts included (not damaged or missing anything)

So if you've got one for sale, just post here the model number, how long you've used it for and how much you selling it for.

P.S. Seriously, don't post off-site to NCIX or Newegg, cause i'm tired of people doing that.

Call your local small computer stores. They usually have a stock pile of those and sell em for cheap.

And since you live in vancouver theres about 100000 of them.

Not so sure, those card ( the specific one he ask ) was not born when PCI was the norm.

You can find few of your model new, in place like NCIX and New Egg, ( thos one have a lot, depends on yout budget ) but when I need something very special I look at geeks here a link to some PCI , of course it's not cheap, but sometime geeks have very hot deal especially in dual xeon processor board with processor , in my case good for replace a defective one on a server


PCI Video Cards, Video Cards PCI, DDR PCI Video Card, Cheap PCI Video Cards

the traditional supplier

Newegg.ca - Computer Hardware,Video Cards & Video Devices,Desktop Graphics / Video Cards,PCI,

NCIX.com - Buy Video Cards In Canada.

@enaberif - Kinda lazy to do that, that's why i'm posting. Also kinda no trust some warehouse that doesn't have a website.

@dataxpert - I never really mentioned anything specific other than pixel shader 2.0 and PCI. The models listed are ones that i've looked up and have taken as a sort of guideline from NCIX's website. The ones listed on geeks are fail and overpriced and not what I asked.

Anyways, buump of the day and still looking.

I'm in vancouver and probably have what you're looking for. Toss me a PM to remind me and I'll do some digging around to see what I've got.

That being said, Cal's is not a bad place. I've been there a few times.

Alright, tossing you a PM and seeing what you've got.

That said, Cal like a warehouse you walk into and look around? or some place which just pick up stuff? If it's the first one, then i'd probably have time to go there and walk around.
