However, just because it says it can run Vista, doesn't mean it will run it full blown. You also should check with the manufacture of your devices for Vista drivers.

Just out of curiosity, why do you want Vista? Do you simply want it because it's the latest and greatest? If I were you, I'd just stick with XP, as upgrading from Vista to XP is rather pointless. The only thing that I can see giving you any potential issues is the GPU, but disabling Areo should solve that problem.
