After a little more search for 8800 gtx, I came across this, which probably 
answers my question:

"There's something about Nvidia's numbering system that should be understood. 
The 8800GTX won't work with VDPAU. Why? Because it was actually released 
before some of the other 8k series cards that have the newer PureVideo 2 
hardware. The 8800GTS 512 will work though. Confusing enough? All 9k cards and 
GTX cards will work, as well as all other 8k cards (that I know of). No 7k or 
older cards will work, nor will any AGP card that I know of. So far, the 9300 
mobile/motherboard chip is the only one that will decode VC1/WMV3. All of the 
other supported cards will decode standard-def DVDs and x264 files. No other 
MPEG4 codecs, for instance Divx/Xvid, will work with VDPAU."
