Running at that resolution you may be fine with that setup although I really can't say. If you have the money then I would say buy the game and see how it runs, if it runs below what you want then invest in a stronger card, you can typically find the high-end cards running around $200 now and sales keep popping up for lots of the GPUs out there.
You would really have to ask someone that has an 8800GT and is running Arma 2 to find out how you'd fare with it. Might be a good idea to request that an admin moves this to one of the Arma 2 forums as I don't think many of them wander through this section of the forums.
EDIT: I forgot that the 8800GT is actually a decent card and should allow you to run at normal with AA off at that resolution I believe with maybe a couple settings on low. Still, it's best to ask someone that has an 8800GT

Damnit Blizzard, fix ZvT already >.<
In Soviet Russian, Arma admins are nice to you!
You'll be able to run it smoothly at medium settings. Though I wouldn't suggest having AA or AF on if you get into a bigger firefight or want to try it on high(er) settings.
I don't own the game, but one of my clan buddies does and he also has a 512 MB 9800GT (which is a rebrand of the 8800GT). He's running it at medium-high settings, no AA, no AF, and using a 21" LCD monitor @ 1440 x 900.

I am NOT an acorn! -.-
Codename, as cheap as RAM is right now, I would look at going with a full 4 gigs. A high end 4 gig kit can be found for about $35, maybe cheaper after rebates on sites like Newegg.com and Zipzoomfly.com. That would help take care of one possible bottleneck for very little cost.
