Windows XP was released over 10 years ago and is getting few to no updates, so the only choice that makes sense if you're going to buy a copy of Windows is to get Windows 7..

What was not mentioned in the above replies is the fact that Windows 7 x 64 bit will allow you to use ALL of your installed memory. XP x 32 bit will only recognize and use around 3.6 GB.
