There are, in fact, other reasons to use a 64-bit OS. While it's still rare, some games do have the option to use 64-bit instruction sets, that can yield improvements in some areas. One can only expect the trend to grow in the long run.

That particular card supports DX9c, so it will run the Vista Aeroglass interface, although it can be argued that it's getting a little long in the tooth for newer games. Conversely, some older games do have compatibility problems on Vista, however. So if you have some older games that you still play regularly, it might be worth your while to do some searching to see if other people have been reporting problems between those games and Vista.
