No it wouldn't; the 8800GT 512MB trounces the old G80 8800GTSs in everything, especailly the 320MB version of the G80 8800GTS.That would greatly depend on what resolution he was gaming at.
The 8800 GT is a much better card then the older 8800 GTS 320mb cards.
Geforce 8800GT faster than 8800GTS 640MB
New Nvidia GeForce 8800GT Surprises
And yes, that is a great deal on the 8800GT, and I would highly recommend it if you have room for it in your budget.
