I thought that our video card died again on Monday; but, fortunately it turned out to be a lose/faulty connection. I used to always have extra cables around; but technology gets obsolete so fast these days that I don’t keep as many spares since they might not be compatible with our next computer. The price for a replacement at all the local retailers ten times more expensive than comparable items online. I understand physical stores can’t be as cheap as web stores; but I really don’t get the astronomical difference in price. Local retailers are pricing themselves out of the market on technology items.
