Default Thinking of upgrading to this video card

GeForce 8800GT
Newegg.com - EVGA 512-P3-N801-AR GeForce 8800GT 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Retail

Do you think that card will be good for 2 or 3 years? I'm not a heavy gamer. I like to play an occasional game once every week or so. I love to do video editing, and watching movies.

I'm hoping to upgrade to a video card in the next month to last me for 3 years. and by the end of the year upgrade to Windows Vista.
