rainbow tables only work on unsalted passwords. These were used by microsoft for 'lan' style passwords. IIRC, vista and win7 don't use these. And if you use a 14 character password or longer, even windows xp disables the lan encryption.
Your rainbow tables are effectively useless against aes-128, aes-256, and even des. They simply precompute password hashes, and generating the tables takes quite a long time.
Using rainbow tables has nothing to do with gpu acceleration.
