It's your choice. What games are you going to be playing? If you want the absolute best in graphics, get a DirectX 10 graphics card. Games won't support it for a few more months probably, but once they do, the results will be amazing.

Look at this, you can barely tell the difference between the game (Crysis) and real life:

The Direct X10 wont be utilized for at least another year or so, but if youre into gaming i would get it. if not the one you have is great

You can still play them, but for graphics like the ones in that picture, it'll need to be made for Vista.

Untrue. Crysis is coming out around Q3 2007, Spore is coming out Q2 2007, Halo 2 is coming out Q1 2007, and so on.

More DirectX 10 games coming out soon:
Alan Wake
Flight Sim X - already out
UT2007 - May '07
Hellgate: London - Summer '07

There's more too.

if i get that video card, itll play any games that are out in the market now and any new ones like halo 2 and crysis that come out in the future on vista correct?.

Also will this graphic card work with an Intel Duo Core E6400?. Or do i need to get some kind of "specific" motherboard?

Yeah, it'll be perfect. I don't know about "any" new games, but it'll play all the new ones for the next year or two.
