The requirements are here:
*9600ATI or 5700FX or better

Yeah, I guess it would work with that. Personally I would get an 8000 series for the vdpau support (ones that have vdpau, because some even in 8000 series don't like "Unsupported hardware from the GeForce 8 series includes the 8800GTS 320/640MB editions and the 8800GTX").
