It will probably work although the 8800GT required a 26amp +12 volt rail. You would be better of with energy efficient (green edition) 9800GT or a HD5670. First thing you would notice is instability if the PSU cant handle it.

The most powerful card that might work with that PSU is the HD 5750, but just to be on the safe side, get a HD 5670, whose performance is not far behind the 8800 GT.
