    какой ещё?!..

    I wonder how can one say it in English.
    An example:
    - Do you remember, I gave you 100 baxes (как это пишется?? ) for YYY?
    - Yes.
    - So?
    - I bought XXX from them.
    - What's the XXX??? (?)

    In Russian it would be "Какой еще XXX?!" or "Что еще за XXX?!"
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    Рискну предположить, что это bucks, а насчёт вопроса - тут либо What XXX? либо Which XXX?

    singular: buck
    plural: bucks

    I don't really get you mean but I think: "What XXX?!"

    You should find some other means to convey your indignation.

    Maybe "What the hell do you mean, you bought xxxxxx?!" or "XXXX? What the <...insert an expletive of your choice...>"

    Or what TATY suggested, simply "What XXX?!". It will work if said with a right intonation.

    Это неправильно?

    The reason "with it" is used in this case is because even though "bucks" is plural it is a noun that it is considered a single quantity whether you have one buck or 100 bucks. Consequently it takes a singular verb or singular pronoun. See [url="http://books.google.com/books?id=BEHFyMCdwssC&pg=PA36&lpg=PA36&dq=bucks+en glish+usage&source=web&ots=yphC9zyHUw&sig=8hz5Xxy_ TsinQa6yAfPxQfyUak0"]http://books.google.com/books?id=BEHFyM ... fPxQfyUak0[/url]

    Тут не только single quantity, тут еще и предлог меняется...

    "from them" (или "from it") -- нельзя.

    In that English sentence "from them" refers to the people or company where he will buy a gravitsapa, not to the matches. http://www.cswap.com/1986/Kin-Dza-Dza/c ... ps/a/00_25 To refer to the matches you would write: " . . . I will buy a gravitsapa with them." You wouldn't use "it" because "matches" are not thought of as a single quantity like "100 bucks".

    buy something from somebody - покупать что-то у кого-то. Так что в переводе получилось "я куплю у них гравицапу".

    А вот это уже больше похоже на перевод, сделанный русскоязычными. Впрочем, такую киндзадзу можно и не читать. А вот от чтения конторской электронной малотиражки отмазаться никак . А там - ну например
    "we have start our newspaper!" "you participation in all these events are absolutely real" "...to increase revenue to our company from ... " "departmend called as GlavBytSnab" "goals they try to archive" "count of <something> is <say, 10> "
    "translated in other language" - и начанаешь понимать, что all your base are таки belong to us.
    Russian is tough, let’s go shopping!
