How about when games like crysis come out?

Iam wondering b/c if I buy the 8800GTS 640, I will probably buy a monitor a month or two after I purchase it same goes for the 320

Will the 320 handle 1600x1050 on games like crysis?

Newegg.com - Acer AL2016WBbd Black 20" 5ms DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 800:1 - Retail

For a monitor like that for example, which card would perform better?

If I buy the 8800 GTS i might have enough money to buy a monitor as well

At the earliest cyrisis will be out in september.

If your going to run Crysis above 1280 x1024 res with high details, you will need a 512mb video card or higher.

Which probably will be the case

Ill have a 1600x1050 monitor by then...

EDIT:Keeping that in mind which card would you recommend for a 1600x1050 everything on high?
I will most likely upgrade in a year or two so which card would do me best when I decide to upgrade in a year or two?

gtx is overkill right now, and not worth the 500$ + to buy it

GTX will play crysis fine and any other game that comes out within the next year, year and a half. Id see no reason to wait til november/december for the 9 series. If anything go SLi with the GTx's when the 9 series drive prices down.

Even if I upgrade in a year or two?

b/c i know for a fact the 9 series isnt going to be cheap
Ive heard between 800-900 and its coming around the end of this year to beginning of next year then add a year to that which will be when i could probably upgrade once again.
