Default CS Source and my 5800

I have to say, Valve did a great job on the code for CS:source in regards to the last gen NV cards. I have a 6800GT at home that absolutely rocks the house at 455/1.16 At work I have basicly the same setup but use my trusty old 5800NU clocked at 520/1120. Suprisingly it does very well in CS:S. It gets in the 70's at 1024x768 although it takes a beating if AA or AF is used it runs great with trilinear. I think that even though it uses a dx8 path its very playable. Anyone else have an opinion?
