Yeah, www.pricewatch.com, click on video cards, the radeon 7500's are
starting at $69.00, I then usually find a vendor I like and recognize,
has a working (mozilla compatible) website etc.  Usually from the
first page or two, so I'd prolly end up paying maybe $75-80 + shipping.

Yeah, I expect about a factor of 2 from fry's unless it's something
special on sale designed to get people to visit fry's to buy the high
priced stuff.

The kt266a is a great linux chipset, I believe it's being replaced by
a kt333 and soon the kt333a, I'd probably get one of them unless I
wanted a dual.  The SIS 735's also work well, and are quite cheap,
I bought mine for $65, and it includes on board audio and network.
The sis900 is now well supported by recent kernels, not sure about the
audio on board, there is a binary driver, not sure about source.
