Default Confused which windows to buy...

So I'm putting together new rig and in around 2 months I should have all the parts bought finally. I'm not in a rush to build so I read and research and buy part after part till I finallly have em all. But I'm still confused which windows to buy, xp or vista, home or premium ? Ppl have been complaining about vista for so long yet almost everyone has it. Now there's some new thing about dx10 which I don't even comprehend what the difference is. Last rig I put together was 2 yrs ago and a lot changed since. Can someone help me clear my mind cuz it's buggin the **** outta me.

nope, no DX10 on XP... sry... DX10 cards only matter on vista...
DX9c is still enough to play pretty much all games out there now, so no worries... - RK
