Default Sapphire X1600Pro

I was thinking about getting this basic card for my new build (somethime in March) to hold me over until the new DX10 cards and Vista come out.

I've also seen some refurb X800GTOs for under $110.
I know refurb isnt the best route but hey, its just a temporary thing until the goodies come out later this year.

Oops, forgot to put the main point of my post, do you guys think this is a good enough temporary fix until later this year?

Get a GTO2, they will unlock to an X850XTPE, and that will for sure hold you over until the DX10 cards.

I'd go ahead and get the X1600 Pro. That's what I was looking at until I found I had a little more in my budget. I sprang for the 6800GS, but I found 50 more bucks. The X1600Pro would be a pretty good move, I think.
