No to transparency

Your machine still needs to meet the minimum hardware requirements before it can run Aero.

For Home Basic users: Aero does not mean that transparency will be enabled. Only Aero taskbar thumbnails and maybe some other features will be enabled by this utility. There is no way to enable transparency on Windows Home Basic.

If you don't mind spending a bit more money and your graphics card is good enough for Aero, you might want to consider buying a Windows Anytime Upgrade product key.
