Re: which would be the best windows for a customized PC?
You would also want to use a 64bit version. Since you are spending a fair amount of money on this build I would assume you will have more than 3gb of memory and will need 64bit to use it all.
win7 rc is free for a year and is a great option as well.
For retail versions Pinscher is correct that Vista Home premium is the best.
ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 :: INTEL i7 920 @3.4 :: XFX GTX260 :: 6gb Corsair 1600 :: Corsair 750TX :: TRUE 120 :: Samsung T240 24" :: Windows 7 X64
