Playing this game and it runs grand on my i7 rig with aging GTS 8800.

Would BF3 run on this card? I know I need to upgrade it - and will do so in next few months - but would BF3 run at all on the 8800?
Thanks,

dont bother, i've got the 8800 GTX and it wont play anything nowadays

I have a friend who still on 8800 GTS 320MB version and he players a lot of games fine.
Obviously he turns settings down in some games, and his resolution is only 1680x105, but saying these cards are useless is just nonsense.

BF3 is obviously a LOT more demanding than Bioshock. A little bit of googling found this:

True to DICE's word, the GeForce 8800 GT does indeed play Battlefield 3, though at a humble resolution of 1280 x 1024 and at Low Quality settings.
The settings they went for was minimum FPS at least 30, and average somehwere in 40-60. So if you are willing to accept less than 30fps minimum, you could up the settings somewhat, but it's not going to be as pretty as a more powerful card could provide.
