Most upgrades from that card will really only get you a higher frame rate, so that games run smoother. It basically has all the same rendering capabilities (Direct X 9 support) as the 9800XT, it's just not as fast. The Nvidia card do not support DX9 as well as ATI, but are also very fast.
Upgraded cards will also be able to handle increased resolution/graphic effects while maintaining a high frame rate.
