Window 7 64-bit Home Preimum or Professional would be my recommendation.

Any new build should be based on a 64-bit OS... 1) It allows you to utilize all of your 4GB of RAM & more if required. 2) All developers are heading toward 64-bit software and eventually, 64-bit will be your only option. 3) The driver issue seen with the initial release of XP 64-bit have been fixed through Vista & Windows 7 64-bit OS's.
