Default Re: Worth the upgrade?

Take a look at the table below (from anandtech's GT280 review iirc). I know it compares 8800GTX to GTX280, but the results are still applicable to your situation, just scaled back slightly.

So you can see that anything heavy on shader power or ROP Blending or both (example: Oblivion with HDR enabled) will see a healthy performance increase over g80/g92.
