You shouldn't need new hardware to support the new SDHC cards, but don't bother wasting your money on the higher-end in terms of speed class. SD1.1 HW can only operate up to 100Mbps throughput (theoretical), whereas SD2.0 HW can go up to 200Mbps. You definitely need a SW upgrade though as the command set for SDHC is slightly different.
