Default HD Native... Thunderbolt or PCIe?

I have a 2008 Mac Pro and want to get HD Native.

While I would love to ALSO get one of the new Mac Pros when they come out, it just isn't in the budget.

Does this mean I "must" buy the PCIe version of HD Native?

I have the PCI E version in my mac pro 2008 and it works great and if you ever upgrade to the new Mac Pro you can buy a thunderbolt enclosure from OWC or Sonnet for 350 to 400 bucks and continue to use your pcie card.
