Share number calculator for buying?

You know your buying power but the share price is flying around. How many shares can you buy? It would be nice if our broker could calculate it for us. We just put in the order for so much XYZ, state how much we want to spend and it buys as many shares as possible. So simple. Has anyone encountered a broker that offers this? How about at least a website with real time quotes that you can enter your buying power and ticker and it will show you in real time the number of shares you can buy? Or a web based spreadsheet program that is connected in real time to the American stock market. I thought that maybe Google Docs, their spreadsheet program might accomplish this. I know nothing about spreadsheets so I'm in the dark. Any ideas? I waste so much time calculating this every time I buy. Especially recently with prices flying up and down so much.
