Would it handle 1080p blue ray on an athlon 3200 system overclocked 2.4 ghz? Play Crysis at 1028x768?

Most likely, though I'm not sure how well.

my 6800 gt will only play crysis if i go 800x600 and drop all the eye candy. Might as well be playing the original Doom if I'm going to do that. I'm not quite ready to build a system unless I find a stellar deal Black Friday. Just limping along I guess.

RAM has very little effect on performance until higher resolutions and/or if you use memory intensive settings

I wouldn't say the 3650 is twice as fast as your 6800GT
The midrange HD2000 and HD3000 series kinda sucked for games

I think it's time to let the ol' AGP setup go, there's just too many bottlenecks to try and the amount of performance you're getting for the money really is diminished considerably. For around $2-300 you'll get a system with longer life, with more upgrade options, and much better performance in the meantime.
