You don't need an 8800 series, but with that processor, you'll need more than a 7600 to get decent frames.

November I think is the release for the Radeon X2950Pro which is apparently going to be an awesome buy when it comes out. Keep an eye for that if you can wait a bit. The 8800GTS is a solid contender if you need to get something right now as the prices are REALLY good. I would in this case suggest the 640mb version instead of the 320mb version simply because you're looking at big screen gaming. You should be focused more on the 512mb (and a 256bit bus minimum) and upwards cards as these will have the memory capacity to store the larger frame buffer needed when dealing with higher resolutions.
