And mind that 8800GT is a perfect fit for absolutely most modern games.
I really don't understand why people buy monsters just to play Metro 2033 or Crysis @ 1920x1080 or higher.
It's all about how smooth your gameplay is with maxed out settings @ high resolution. You probably play on 1024x768 res without changing your graphical settings. Then yes, that card would destroy every game available now. But I play at the res you suggested all the time with every game. So I require the utmost tech in order to make my gameplay enjoyable.
Try playing dirt 2 in DX11 on your 8800gt, see how far you get.
