we work with ArcGIS 10.1, now, and since, we don't need ArcSDE for 
communication with PostgreSQL db and PostGIS geometries. If you install 
special db client libraries for PostgreSQL, you are able to create a 
direct database connection to the PostgreSQL database and to directly 
im- and export data between ArcGIS and PostgreSQL. We have not much 
improved our testing because we are waiting for SP1 for ArcGIS 10.1 
(which should support PostgreSQL 9.1.3 and PostGIS 2.0) and the 
installation of our new PostgreSQL server, so e.g. I can't say which 
ArcGIS licence level you would need...

For further information see:
