Don't. Your computer will choke on Vista, even after the upgrade the nVidia series 6. Sorry... :(

BTW, Vista has DirectX 10 but you won't benefit from it unless you buy a 9600GT or other DirectX 10 card. So again, no serious benefit there from Vista with your setup.

You'd also need 4 GB of RAM for decent performance under Vista.

OK!!! then I guess I won't , maybe after when I get a job, I'd be able to buy myself a good computer... ^_^I'm only 17 years old, still in college, so still have to learn much more!!! thanks a lot!!

also, about the installing it, I was hesitating because I knew that I can only get major advantage in vista by having more than 4GB of ram ^_^
