Re: 8800GTS G92 @ 1920x1200
i dont think you will lose that much FPS.
My friend plays at a res like yours, and i play on 1680 x 1050, back when my computer was working, he pretty much had the same set up as me, and i only saw about 1-2 FPS drops. I dont know if thats normal, but that was the difference between us.
If you use vista, vista will take about 767mb of the physical ram and makes it into shared ram, and when you play a game, and the video card requires more ram to run smoother, it will take only the required shared ram and add it to the dedicated ram. Though you will lose some physical ram, but 2gb should be enough, others will suggest getting more than 2gb of ram if running vista.
For my resolution, 512mb is enough. i think you will only need more if you play at an even higher resolution.
Im thinking it should be good till about next summer, thats my estimate if you want to play with like max settings with AA on.
I had an X1950 till this summer, and i could run most games on high with low AA, and some without, and i played at 1680 x 1050. The 8800GT was almost doubled in FPS. If the X1950 could last that long, then i am assuming that the 8800GT should last about the same.
