Default What Video Card For this Set Up

My son and I have decided to go with the following computer.
It will be for gaming.

We are really not sure what video card to get for this, should we just wait and get a direct x 10 card, or should we get a card now that will work in crossfire, or should we just get the EVGA 7900 GTO that everybody is talking about.

If you see anything wrong with this set up, please let us know as we are planning on ordering today. Thanks.

Wow you picked an awesome setup. Yea wait for the DX10 just a few weeks away from Nvidia's G80. Also you might want to consider a full tower case and not mid-tower, because the graphic cards are really big.
