Should I buy a BFG 7900gt for 190 total?

My friend is willing to sell me his 7900gt for 190. He just got it and it performs pretty well. I'm thinking of getting this for my lil bro. Is it worth it? Or should I wait for DX10?

Great card, make sure it runs properly as a lot of the earlier 7900GT's had problems like artifacting etc.

If it's for your bro get it, should handle any directx9 game with no problems.

But I'm afraid when Nvidia comes out with their usual kick@ss mid-range card for around $200, it'll blow even the current top of the line Radeon X1950xtx away (similar to the 7600gt and the 6800 ultra). Any info on when Nvidia's nextgen DX10 mid range cards are coming out? Thanks.
