Windows 8.1 Pro x64

Well for using only 1GB of RAM, running windows 7 isn't a good idea. Mostly, Win7 requires atleast 2GB of RAM. But to answer your question, I would run Win7 Home.

It's more important to get a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

I would upgrade to 2gb RAM if your model supports it. Google the model + memory Upgrade.

In addition I would edit the visual effects of fading, sliding, dragging intact and selection rectangle which are RAM hogs: Optimize Windows 7 - Windows 7 Forums Step 5.
