I've been gaming at 1366x768 on at 37" LCD for the past several years. For the most part, the 8800GTX has been able to do quite well at that resolution, but we're getting a 50" 1080p set in the next few days, and I think the 8800GTX won't be up to the task. I'm excited to see (1) 1080p, and (2) 1080p with lots of eye candy and with great performance. I know my Q6600, even at 3.6GHz, will bottleneck the 580 in some circumstances, but I don't think it'll be that bad. Hopefully it won't be too long before I can compliment the 580 with a SandyBridge system.
