I would not expect any difference at all, except for gaming or CAD applications. The video card is just not that fundamental to the speed of the basic operating system (for example, boot time), and a card that can run Aero and already has 128MB of memory (all that Aero or so-called "Office" applications (e.g. 2D applications)) just isn't holding things up as far as Windows is concerned. Now if we start talking about heavy 3D applications (e.g. gaming & CAD), that's another matter. But the question dealt with basic windows stuff and boot time, and the video card just isn't going to impact that much.
'If' he went from a gt 128meg with shared ram and went to a gt 256 that had 256meg onboard the video card, then I would expect a big difference if the system itself only has 1gig or less of ram..

Faster processor on the video card?

Vista runs smoother and apps load faster. There are more benfits but
