You should wait for some reviews before upgrading to Vista, as the only thing superior that it offers in comparison to XP is DirectX10
Everything else is arguable...
The new aero skin and UI has not been proven to be a new OMG***UBERL33T way of using an OS, and it will slow down your Windows experience for sure.
Final answer : wait.

Vista Ultimate is Nice. Driver support for Vista is motly In Beta stages. However chekc that you can get drivers for your hardware in Vista before upgrading.
