Do a search for "radeon 9550"
You should find the following:
Sapphire Radeon 9550 / 128MB / AGP 8X / VGA / DVI / TV Out / Lite Version Video Card - $29.99.
Shipping for me was $9.
It's not listed as "in stock", but "ships in 24-48 hours". I've never bought from these guys before, but I think they're affiliated with tigerdirect so hopefully they're OK.

I believe this is a SE card but nevertheless, good enough for word-processing system and inexpansive.

Upon receiving my order confirmation e-mail which showed I had purchased the following:
"Sapphire Radeon 9550 / 128MB / AGP 8X / VGA / DVI / TV Out / Lite Version Video Card (YYT1-100576)"
I followed the link to the order status on their website and it showed a slightly different story:
"(YYT1-100576) 3M FIBER CABLE ST ST 62.5-/125"
So I called to ask about the discrepancy. The CS rep was very helpful and phoned the manufacturer while I was on hold. She said that the manufacturer confirmed the item number and was indeed shipping the video card. She stated that the description error was in their system and that the item number was the important thing. So, I'm still expecting a video card, but I'll keep you posted on the true outcome.
Because of this minor snafu, I'm starting to think that this may be a part number / description / pricing error on their website since these cards usually go for $70+ so be wary.

Hopefully, come Wednesday I'll have a video card and not a set of cables that I don't want.

Anyone receive there Video card/(cables) yet? Mine is supposed to be delivered on Thursday. Thx.

Even after doublechecking with the CS rep, I got a worthless cable. I recommend you all cancel your orders if it's not too late. I plan on simply having my cc company remove the charges. I'm certainly not paying to ship this junk back to them. Sorry I ever posted this.

Nice try. Don't feel bad. Usually the good companies will at least give a comp or coupon when they screw up their prices. We now know to avoid that place.
