If you don't mind going commercial, then the WingIDE has been working
very well for me.
And it apparently has a VIM mode (and emacs).  I'm an emacs guy,
though, so I haven't tried out the VIM support.

Wing is based on GTK so the interface on Windows doesn't look so nice,
or act so much like a native Windows app (F10 pops up menus --
weird?), but it works well.  I tried a bunch of free IDEs first and
gave up out of frustration after a while, too.  Wing just worked for
me and worked quite well.  Documentation is pretty good too.
www.wingware.com.  Free trial so you can see if you like it first.

I installed it successfully but I didn't manage to make it really work, meaning having my python file opened with gvim and include some debugger (I guess either the installation is not complete or there is something I don't understand when opening a new python file). And the docs is really scarce at the moment so it is quite difficult to pursue along that line.

(I installed Suse10.1 from the downloadable version and many many packages are missing there - the commercial DVD being double layer... and it seems that only half of it is available on the web).
