Red face cpu & vpu... need your opinions

I think this is the hardest thing I have to decide on before July 22nd.

What do you guys think?
System choices:
e6750 + x1950xt
OR
e6750 + 8800gts
OR
q6600 + x1950xt

I really don't want to get q6600 and 8800gts... I think it's a waste and is a little over my budget. Keep in mind future games too like Crysis, Alan Wake, etc.
Remember I will NOT be upgrading for a LONG TIME. Maybe upgrade in 2010.

Out of those choices i would recommend the E6750 + 8800GTS, it is the most balanced combination

****, would it just be better to wait until December?? Cuz I do NOT, repeat DO NOT, want to upgrade. That way I can get a penryn with a 8800gts. By then 8800gts should be pretty cheap, right?
