Windows 7 7600 (x86 & x64)

Home Premium. I don't really see the gain in spending twice the price for Professional, I personally don't think you actually get twice the product. Plus I don't see a need for me to be connecting to a domain any time in the near future.

Windows 7 Professional x64 SP1

It was going to be Pro for me, but seeing how Pro is only going to be 20 bucks cheaper than Ultimate...I'm on the fence now.

Windows 7 Ultimate Vista Ultimate x64

Home Premium for me, I won't use all the extras in Ultimate, I want the discounted upgrade offer but it doesn't seem to be available in Australia.
