I upgraded from the 7300 to the 8800 and only noticed a difference in playing back 1080p videos in quicktime and then only when scaling the videos down so they'd fit on the screen. With the 7300 I'd be dropping frames like crazy. With the 8800 it no longer does that. I noticed absolutely no difference with vlc or mplayer.
