"Future Proof Graphics Card" is an oxymoron. It doesn't matter what card you purchase it's out-dated in approx. 1 year.

There's no such thing as "Future Proof" unless you're willing to buy new games without the ability to enable all of the graphical features and if that's the case... you might as well buy a GTX260 for much cheaper.
