Vista 64bit.

I have ultimate 32bit now but I will be formating to 64bit when my Raptor gets back from RMA.

Drivers support for 64 bit operating systems has gotten much better recently. You don't need Ultimate at all, Home Premium is all you need.

Vista x64 without a doubt. Will give the best performance. I recommend a dual boot with XP x86. Good to have for certain times...
