The 8800 gt sounds like just the card I am searching for, great price and performance. Before this my choice would have been the 2900 pro. Would the 8800 gt be bottlenecked in my pc?

DFI lanparty
AMD x2 3800 @2.2 ghz
2gb OCZ ddr4
500 w antec, i forget exactly (pc is at home)
acer 22"

Nope, but SLI will be.
