Windows 7: What file system should my Window 7 partition be?

What file system should my Window 7 partition be?

I am using a Gparted boot CD (on my other computer) to create a new partition to install Windows 7. It has an option where you select a file system for your new partition, and I'm not entirely sure what this means.

The partition for my Windows XP installation uses a "ntfs" file system, so should I use that or leave it "unformatted"?

I really need help here, thanks in advance.
