Smile Turning "vim" into a powerful Ide for Java and C/C++

#ubuntu channel suggested me to use vim on my xubuntu machine (256MB RAM). Please sujjest me the components that I need to install in order to get the best of vim as a "C/Java" Ide. I decide to use vim for my programming tasks. Programmer Fans of vim, there's a pen waiting in my hand. I need features like highlighting, completion, auto indentation, snippets and many other that can enhance vim.

vimtutor (learn vim conversationally. changed my vim life!)
:help smartindent
:help syntax
:help spell
gvim (the gui has brought to light features I wouldn't have known about)
:e . (browse file system)
ctrl-] (for auto completion, see :help tags)

Please don't take this as rtfm, it's just the vim manual is pretty good, and talks about these things more in depth and accurately than I could.
