Default another noob question on graphics cards

Ive just baught an abit AW9D-MAX and was wondering which graphics card to buy, the rest of the system goes something like this:
core2 duo E6600
2gb g-skill 6400 ddr2
320g seagate barracuda sata2
600w psu

I havn't baught these parts yet.But my main concern is the video card, because the mobo supports crossfire does that mean I should get an X1950XTX or can the mobo run a geforce 8800?
XTX or directx10? that is the question.

If a mobo supports crossfire, it doesn't mean you have to get an ATI card. It can run an 8800. Go for the 8800. Unless you want to wait for ATI's DX10 card, releasing in a few months.
