the 8800GT will actually outperform that even though it's actually cheaper, if it ever becomes available, or you could get two ati 3870s in crossfireX. And the new 8800GTS is out soon so it would probably be better just to wait for that.

The 8800GT is a nice video card to get for Crysis and other games like UT3 too. For the price you're paying, you're getting a really top notch video card. Unless of course, you just want to go all out nuts with a 8800GTX . I'm using an older 7800GT and the graphics on Crysis are hands down beautiful. You can use that as a reference point.
