I second microcenter, but I may be biased. I also work there :) I guess the 
prices are higher than what you can get cards for on the web, but that's to 
be suspected.

Anyhow, i've been gathering equipment for the last month or so and have an 
8db omni, a 24db directional grid and a 12db omni coming in the mail. The 
difference between having the built in antenna vs an external antenna with 
some real gain is enormous. On my way to work with just the orinocco card, 
i grabbed 5 access points; whereas with the 8db omni i grabbed 50!

I've had good success with the guys at fab-corp (www.fab-corp.com) and plus 
they have the orinocco gold card on sale for $80.

War driving rocks! hehe
