If price is the matter, you can download the "Platform SDK" for free 
from Microsoft's homepage - and AFAIK it contains the command line 
version of the compiler + all libraries just like Visual Studio does.

IMHO it could save you some trouble to use the same compiler for Python 
itself and your extensions. Also be sure to build *both* as debug or 
release (that is, both the *same*) since you will otherwise end up with 
2 different versions of the C runtime libraries!
