Python and C, looking for a C IDE

I'm looking to learn C to move some 'speed sensitive' code from C to
python. I'm partly doign this as an exercise to learn a static
language to help broaden my programming skills - so please don't jump
on the bandwagon and tell me I'd be better placed to put my efforts
into optimising my python code !!

I'd like to use tools like Pyrex and weave with the GCC compiler on
windoze. I've got Pyrex working... but weave doesn't seem t
oco-operate with GCC :-(
Although weave itself will compile with GCC (Apparently) I haven't yet
worked out how to persuade it to *use* GCC... weave has it's own
mutation of distutils with an (apparently) different and undocumetned
configuration system...

That aside - Pyrex looks the kiddie. Can anyone reccomend a reasonable
C IDE ? An 'IDE' would be nice, but an editor might be sufficient.
