you may want to get a middle-range video card until vista comes out. Then you could get a new top-of-the-line DX 10 card.

If you're considering Vista, bear in mind that many of it's requirements will completely upgrade the hardware from todays standards necessary to run properly, not just the g-card.
THIS is just what M$ are saying you'll need. I found I needed at least twice their 'recommended' spec to run XP and reckon it will be the same with Vista running other applications on it.
