Windows 7 Home Premium for gaming. You really don't need Professional, unless your connecting to a domain on a network.

Win 7 Home Premium x64 (for extra RAM has TBH with 2 to 4 GB video cards getting more common for gaming 32 bit is not quite cutting it for a gamin computer anymore in my opinion). Or if you can get 8 cheaper then its also ok for gaming if the start screen does not annoy you - but if its more expensive then its not nesseary for gaming and I would stick to 7 and let the 8 mature some more.

I just bought another copy of Windows 7 (I've run Windows 8 at work for testing for the past 9 months, and just don't care for the interface and the "improvements" are generally lost on me because I already have an SSD and really don't boot up every day, as far as gaming goes, Windows 8 and Windows 7 are within 1% of each other) for my newest build and I dual boot with Win 7 and Ubuntu 12.10 (just for kicks).
