hm... vista i would probally get something like a 6600 atleast. but out of the list. the 5700 to my knowledge would b the best

The 5700 I dont think has the capabilities to Run Aero. Something in the Nvidia 7 series definately will.

My 6200 runs Vista like a dream. No problems.

Edit: It runs Aero Too.

Edit2: I can give you my 6200 really cheap if you want. PCI-E. PM me if you want details.

I would recommend just getting the cheapest video card. All of them are able to run Aero. Use the money you saved for some more RAM. 512MB is probably your biggest bottleneck.
Once again...
