Default building a new PC/upgrading current windows 7 machine

I have just ordered PT 10 and am eagerly awaiting its arrival at my front door.

I am certain I should either update my current machine or build a new one.
My question is about hardware upgrades, specifically the video card.

I'm trying to do this semi-affordable and was hoping for suggestions for an affordable yet reliable card. I plan on going with NVIDIA (hopefully one of the approved ones).

Any suggestions would be awesome!

Thanks so much......

Most any mid-priced nVidia card should work fine. Using a PNY 210 and I think I paid $54 at Best Buy
