I'm gonna go with a 6600 Gt. But i'm concerned I'll be wating my money on outdated shit in a year.

if you have an sli board then of course, but it also has to be the same exact card.

If your gonna go SLi then you should save up for two 6800s. But I'm running Doom3 with my current setup (see sig) on Ultra Quality and 1024x768 with no performance hit whatsoever. But thats a relatively low res. So I reckon a 6600 should do very nicely.
