With your card you will be able to run Vista just not all the fancy effects. You will be able to play all DirectX9 games just not the DirectX10 ones. You cant Run XP within Vista but you can play Older games on it though. The fancy effects in Vista is called ''Aeroglass'' it ust makes things look all sexy..people with DirectX9 cards cant run that feature, it just means Vista will look just like XP as it is now.

Well shader Model 4 is to do with the High dynamic range and lighting effects on the g-card,at current we only have shader model 3, but when the sm4 cards come out the Directx9L will help support these new cards.
