ehh thats a nice card, but way too expensive for my blood at the moment. i'll stick to my gt or maybe get a gts512/gtx since the prices are falling so much on them.

Dude, a 8800GT is more then capable, I just posted in a thread just like this.

In my last rig before I sold it, I was running CoD4, Portal, Jericho,TF2, and some other games at 1920x1080 smoothly with an 8800GT.
