my friend used an OC'd 8800GT for about 4 years without needing to upgrade. It's a good card for a slightly older system.

i had the 8800GTS 320MB. and it was great. it got me through Crysis and Modern Warfare 2. I OC'd it of course, but because of the small amount of memory it didn't handle AA very well.
