Default Video card time

WEll my deal with the GTX's fell through due to an NDA aggrement with him and the company that he leases them to.

I have decided to possibly get an 8600GTS for 169.99

Then in 3 months step up to something better with the 8800GT realsed, and maybe a better 8800GTS.

Any other suggestions? I would like to stick with eVGA because of step-up

*I know it uses MSRP pricing*

PS: Used to playing any game below 30 FPS (FX5200 and 6200 PCI) I just want decent frames on BF2, CSS, COD4 (my friend games perfectly with 7300) and decent frames on Crysis.
