Need help choosing "temporary" video card

Hi

I'm prepping for the jump to DX10 with Vista, but seeing the delay, I'm going to have to wait even longer for those Direct X 10 hardware-supported cards to come out.

In the meantime, my x300 is lagging away. I hear it's only worth around $90 now.

I want to get a new video card that will last until I can get a Direct X 10 card, maybe in about a year and a half.

This card should be able to do widescreen and multi-display, and carry me on with decent framerates until DX10. Also, I'm on a budget.

Which video card should I get?

Thanks
