XP MCE. With what you described that would be your best choice. It has the best driver support since it uses XP drivers. The 64 Bit drivers are few and far between. Not all hardware is supported.

Mak just gave the only true disadvantage of XP x64 for once and the newest version of XP is x64 as well but you should check your hardware for compatibility before moving to it.
