I have the 8800GTS with 640MB ram and it can run Oblivion at full setting. Stalker not too sure since it's not out yet by me, but I assume yes. FSX, nothing now can run it at full settings as of now.

I'd wait until directX 10 games really start coming out becasue then all the prices will drop and you'll be kicking yourself with a first generation video card.
