Just get a 7950, no need to go into geforce 8 yet, as new cards will be rolling out soon.

I'd say get a 7900 or 7950 and wait for the next gen of dx10 cards, they're bound to be a lot faster and cheaper than these first gen ones. They'll come out in a year or so I think and until then a 79xxgt series card will run everything you want it to just fine.

I'd say wait until the ATI DX10 cards come so the 8800 lowers in price then get a 8800GTS
