You will only notice a slowdown if you run your games at low resolutions, because then most of the load is on your CPU and not your GPU. Turning up the graphics causes the load to move to the GPU, so if you find the balance between your CPU and GPU, you'll be fine. A 3700+ will be fine with a 7800GTX.
