Windows Security

What I want to do is crete a financial/development box on a home network and am looking for the best way to do this.

- What firewall/av package would allow me the most control to blacklist everything going in and out and only whitelist which IPs can be connected to.
- Should I use Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008?
- How can I configure the Windows system for more security and control?

- I'm more of a Linux guy so I don't do Windows Systems.

I use Eset Smart Security. Firewall, top notch AV, and easy UI for advanced firewall rules.

Yea, ESET was what I was considering using.

Regarding the OS question, which would be idea for setting up a multiuser environment and setting up access controls.
