I need help deciding what I should pick.. I have the choice between the following.

1. Samsung 19inch 4MS Widescreen LCD with a Nvidia EVGA 7950GT 512MB Video Card
Or
2. Nvidia EVGA 8800GTS 640MB Video Card.

How long will the 7950GT last before it gets outdated because of the DX10 only games? How long will the 8800GTS last before a newer DX10 card will come out? How long to you guys honestly think before all major hit games will be DX10 only? I know UT2007 and Quake Wars will still be DX9 so I don't think any DX10 games will be coming out in 07 besides Halo 2.

Which one should I pick? 1 or 2?

I would have to say the G80. It's gonna give you the best performance hands down. Plus, you have a 19 inch LCD already. Maybe its not widescreen, but it is 19 inch. Then you can save up for a bigger monitor, but you will still already be Direct x10 ready.
