I currently have an Apple Airport Extreme wireless router, and it works quite well for what I need. Would there be any benefit to getting the Asus RT-N66U router?

If what you already have works well, well enough that even you can't identify a need to move elsewhere, why change?

FWIW, I'm using an ancient ASUS WL-500gP V2 wireless G router (w/ tomato USB third party firmware, which itself hasn't been updated in the last three years) because it meets my current requirements, even for HD streaming. Don’t underestimate the value of having something that’s proven stable and reliable.

Well, to tell the truth...

I am moving from San Diego to San Francisco, into a new construction home. I am getting U-Verse service and might take the chance to upgrade if it would make any difference.

As stated above it is not likely you would gain much. At most increase in the wireless signals bandwith limit but nobody is using al 54mbps on g routers still so the performance is not likely to inprove much.
