depends how much you got to spend really and what card you have now. But maybe something like X800 GTO for £93.44 inc VAT

If you wait until DX10, then your gonna hold off until the NEXT gen comes out after that... than Opps... wait... 3 months after that... the xxxxxGS gen comes out...

Get what your gonna get now, cause in 3-6 months it'll be dated anyway...

Yeah exactly, no point getting an expensive one now when the DX10 are released soon. But when they are released buy an expensive one to last you.
