Where can I find a GeForce2 MX, like the ones selling in Apple computers. I have been looking for a video card to buy online, but I cant seem to get any 'straight answers', I keep getting sent places that send me to other places, until I am right where I started. Also, I have $90 to spen on a video card, is the GeForce 2 MX my best bet. I will be mostly playing WarCraft III. Any help would be greatly appreciated - Thanks!

Gone but not forgotten.
There is no retail version of either the GeForce 2MX or 4MX. Your best bet would be either the ATI Radeon 7500 or 9000 as they both come in retail packages and are at the lowest price point for AGP video cards for Mac.

Maybe eBay

For the Nvidia cards, maybe try eBay...I saw a GeForce 2MX on there once, but it was over your budget.

Also, the ATI Radeon 9000 Pro is going to be about $149 and I don't think it's actually out yet...that's the one I'm waiting for.

To be honest, I'd save the extra $60 (yeah, yeah, I know how that is, believe me) and get the Radeon 9000, it's an awesome card for the money.

Well it sounds like eBay is the best. But is it possible to get a video card from a store? Such as Fry's, CompUSA, etc.? I live in Austin, Texas and we have a bunch of computer stores here. It would be hard to believe that there are none that hold mac video cards.
