Best Video Card for New Comp??

I’m thinking of buying a new computer from Dell, I’ve got most everything covered, with one exception: I don’t know the best videocard with the widest support. I want this new machine to support Blender, Anim8or, Wings 3D, possibly the student version of Lightwave, and 3DS Max 6 as well as any possible Direct X games I test with either Neoengine, Crystalspace, or DarkBASIC.
I’m not the most knowledgable in this field(not yet, anyway) and would like some info on this stuff before Dell’s next big sale. Could anybody help me?

get any nvidia card, that can handle any of those programs.

a 6600 will do.

your best bet would be an nvidia card IMO. and pci cards are best from what i hear.

Don’t you mean PCI-Express? And yes, go with nVidia.
