iIf you really want future proof, it would be in your best interest to spend a little more and go with a faster card, something more along the lines of the 5870 hd from AMD. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

This has dropped alot in price and is a great card that should be able to play just about any game out there (for at least the next year) at highest settings. That is if the rest of your hardware is up to par.

the 460/5770 will run any game at your resolution for a long time. As of now, you'l be able to crank up most games to fairly high settings. As time passes, & newer games come out, you'l just have to dial down settings to accomodate playable frame rates. But no doubt you'l be able to play any game, just at the cost of lower settings.
The 5770 is a good bet for your budget. You'l have to add in ~$10-20 more for the 460 768 mb (worth it imo)

assuming you have the psu for it I would def get the gtx 460 768mb, that is by far your best choice imo

thanks for all the advice,i am planning to buy an 5770 because my resolution is pretty low and my games can last longer
