Which card for Inventor 2010?

we have an aging Dell "workstation" with a Geforce 7800gtx in it (256MB DDR3 128bit I believe), running Inventor Suite 2010 on Vista x64, 1920x1200.

I found a Gefroce 8600gt (256MB DDR3 128bit) in the spare parts drawer :smileyhappy: So I thought of replacing the 7800gtx with this.

I'm wondering if this worth the hassle at all: I think the 7800gtx is about as powerful as the 8600gt, if not even better. But the 8600gt has Directx10 support. I don't know if this would have any advantage over plain DX9, performance-wise?

What do you think, does it worth fiddling with this at all?
