http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130059 - 6600GT for AGP.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130062 - 7600GT for PCI-E.

I would spend the extra for the 7600GT, assuming you have a PCI-Express slot.

I don't see why there shouldn't be a drop when DX10 cards are released.

Well you can get the 7600GT for now, which should hold you until DX10 comes out.
