Your question should be Vista or Windows 7. Do you have XP apps (not games) that you need to be able to use? If so, windows 7 has virtual XP mode built in where Vista doesnt.

Forget XP. No support for XP in the near future and going Windows 7 will pave the way for direct x 11 capabilites for your gaming needs in the future provide you get a direct x 11 video card as well.

Stick with your current OS, if not go with Vista SP1 x64, then decide to switch to Windows 7 x64.
I'm sure you don't want to be waiting around for the next 3 to 4 months for an OS to be released.

Dat's what I say.

^ SP2 is out so it might be better if he sticks with vista64 SP2.

and then wait for all the kinks to be taken out of win7 x64 and get that.
