Hi D3lizZsh and welcome to the forum!

If you've eyed several candidates to add to your shopping list. Do a bit of digging and go to their respective manufacturer's link. Check if they have 32-bit/64-bit versions of the driver for Vista. One thing that will surely help you decide is if the particular network card has been Vista Certified, it will bear the Vista Certified logo
