Default Graphics Card Recommendation

I am going to buy a new graphics card for one of my new PCs. My old one was a 512 GeForce 7950 GTOC DDR3 DX9. Ran alot of things fine. I just want to jump to DirectX 10 and play some of the upcomming and new games/programs with solid frames. Want something that is quick as ever. And I will spend a fair price to obtain a new G.Card.

I am going to search newegg for something. Thanks for anyone who intends to reply.

get a new DX10 card:

like an HD2900xt or hd2900pro (if they are in stock), 8800gts 320mb (but if you can wait til Monday the 8800gt will come out) or the regular 8800gts (the gts 320mb and 640mb will be discontinued)
