You will probably need more RAM and a better CPU for it to be a good experience.

I would get rid of Vista, install XP on that.

Yes, but for 64 bit I would suggest 4GB RAM.

I have a box with those same specs. It's barely adequate for XP, good enough for a print server. But definitely not adequate for Windows 7.

just take notes for Microsoft, it says:If you want to run Windows 7 on your PC, here's what it takes:

1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor

1 gigabyte (GB) RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit)

16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)

DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver

So according to your configuration, it's okay for u to update to windows 7

My recent experience with upgrading from Xp to Windows 7.
If using the the "classic" desktop the screen redraw speed is slow (processor usage shoots up) when dragging a window over another one,(Dual Core Processor, ATI HD4600) I had to install a custom "classic" Aero theme to solve this.
if you are happy using the standard Aero theme, that works fine.

For your machine spec, I would stick with Xp, the only reason I upgraded was to use the extra memory I had installed.
