With Virtual Server/Virtual PC the guest sessions were very restricted as far as hardware support for higher end video cards and sound cards.  How does Hyperv stack up?

HyperV is limited in the same way. If you want to use high end video cards you are not going to access it through a VM. Sorry for the bad news.
Good luck.
