Also the x1900xtx, as beedubaya said, was used at e3 so at least we know it can run it maxed out and maybe even get a better average than 30 fps after the game is optimized.
Thats why I said "guaranteed"
The 7800GTX is the minimum recommended card so I would assume that it should fare well at medium settings at 1024x768 resolution. Of course it could be higher if the game is well optimized.
The E3 demo on the X1900XTX was running at 1280x1024 with DX10 emulation.
