Windows 7, any version

Really it depends on the games you want to play, if you want to play the latest releases then windows 7 is your best option.

But if your wanting to play older games such as Halo CE and such then windows xp is a good bet.

I was going to use it to play new games like GTA 4 and COD MW2 etc so i will use windows 7

and also does the AMD 760G Motherboard support Crossfire because i am looking on purchasing another ATI Radeon HD 4870 inthe future

The Amd 760G chipset only supports hybrid crossfire

the onboard graphics and an expansion card

if you want full crossfire you will need to purchase a board that supports it
