Keep in mind that XP was optimised for old technology eg. Pentium 4, so it's not really all that good at taking advantage of the extra features that your new hardware is going to offer. Windows 7, however, is designed to take advantage of new hardware. That's why there are so many reviews that put Windows 7 ahead of Windows XP in benchmarks. In the end, I guess it comes down to your choice. If you're more comfortable with Windows XP, go for it. Contrary to what some believe, Microsoft has vowed to continue to support XP up until 2014, and it does have a different feel to it. By 2014, you might have a new computer, or you might be tempted to give Windows 7 a try. One more thing... and I'm sure I don't need to tell you this, but make sure you get the 64-bit version.

I would suggest you to go with the Windows 7 because it's Microsoft's latest OS and also because the support is fading away for XP and it's old as well. Windows 7 should run most of the games you throw at it. If you get yourself an XP you discover a year later that your like a caveman.
