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.
My 5870 is about 14 months old and still handles anything you through at it at max settings.
Future proof depends on how soon companys can make big jumps in performance.Due to 32nm beeing canceled we didnt see that kind of increase in performance.
