Shimano Shadow Rear Derailleur Compatibility?

Because I need a new frame, I was thinking of some other relatively cheap upgrades that would make riding more pleasurable. One idea was changing my rear mech to a Shimano shadow model (Deore M592 specifically) to prevent it from thumping the chain stay.

At present I've a 2006-7 LX model with the corresponding M580 shifters (link below). Would it be a straight swap of derailleurs or would I need to change anything else?
