you will get a very smoll amout of performance and hardware acceleration for wmv9. do not upgrade because agp is dead now. save and get a pci-e board

also you might need a new psu if you are upgrading to 7800

1. That particular 7800GS uses a 7800GT core with 20 pipelines (instead of 16 on a normal 7800GS), so it will smoke that Ultra and any other 7800GS's

2. 7800GT's use less power than 6800Ultras

I personally wouldn't bother upgrading unless its imperative you play at resolutions above 1280x1024,if thats the case I'd just stick with what you have and wait for the DX10 cards to come out.

Not stick with what you have, but get a PCIe board and put it in with a DX10 card when Vista comes out.
