I'd go with 64bit. I have it. It's very nice, fast and pretty stable. But really, it's up to you.

so far it looks like i will
i just have to write or type everything out that relys on Drivers

i guess an email is in order

Just go Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit. Ultimate is just extra money for relatively useless features.

That would be Vista with SP1 integrated into it. It's the only way it's sold.

All X-Fi series cards see Vista support. The Audigy 4 line saw Vista support there as well. In fact Creative is the first one to now see beta drivers for 7.

From beta testing 7 so far I've found it generally sees much faster boot and shutdown times over both XP and Vista when loaded with startups. It won't have the "bloated feeling" many complain about in Vista. And some other advancements like being able to install the 64bit versions there with more then 2gb of memory installed on the system.
