Win 7. Ture 64bit os, and future hame support, there are already games out that have dropped support for xp due to them being native DX10. And XP could never dream of being as fast as win 7....

Windows XP? Seriously? Bleh. Now I'm starting to see how outdated it really is after using it a few days ago. Go with Windows 7. As it has already been stated, new games are starting to drop support for Windows XP because it doesn't support DirectX 10/11 and people are going away from it now to 7.

XP x64 isn't a horror show. Unless you're using an archaic piece of hardware, there are probably drivers for it. I never had any issues running programs, either. The biggest issue I had was having to find an XP x64 specific installer for iTunes, but that's mostly Apple's fault because of their packaging scheme.

On my old e8400 machine, there was a clear performance difference between XP and 7 (in XP's favor), so that's what I went with. My current machine doesn't have as much of a difference, so I just go with 7 because it's a little easier on the eyes and has TRIM support.

I suggest you try them both out and see which suits your needs best.

There is no reason not to go 7 at this point honestly.
