Default Future Compatible Build?

So I was about to do my first build when I started thinking about vista and the new dx10 hardware and everything. Im gonna need the computer before school starts next year, but I want to make sure it'll last me a while before having to upgrade. The question is, should i get a good card now (7600gtxxx) or just get something cheap and decent to hold me over untill the dx10 cards are released? Any athlon X2 and an SLi board should do last me well into the next windows era..(or whatever you wanna call it), right? Thanks.


edit: are there any dx10 cards out yet, or launch dates?

wait until june 6, thats when amd releases its new socket so i highly suggest u wait until then to build a very future proof comp, so overall just get a card that can play the games u want but not at maxed out settings for now

80-100 dollar range....not much. If it is PCI-E I'll say.....

a 6600....http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130260

not a great card..but the best you will get for that kind of money.
