I don't understand why everyone wants to play games at super resolutions. I don't care if a card can handle it but with a more normal resolution, you'll get a large boost in performance. My max on my monitor is 1440X900... if I play Crysis like that I get less than good performance.... almost crap performance really, but just turning down the resolution to something like 1280X800 then I get much better performance and everything still looks great.

Of course that is with my XFX 7600GT 256MB on med settings. I am getting an XFX 8800GS Alpha Dog Edition today so things will change a lot but I still may not run Crysis at max resolution.
