Windows 7 Ultimate x64

From the factors you name, the only with critical importance is the connection speed, which is THE factor when it comes to browsing speed. Another thing that might influence is the browser itself, some are faster than others. RAM and CPU and other things are just needed to support the browser.

Windows updates rarely fix anything, they're only patches for the numerous security bugs in Windows, and occasionally some other minor corrections, but they have nothing to do with performance.

Say we put a Pentium 1, 16MB RAM Win95 with an 10mbps ADSL connection vs an i7, 8GB RAM, SSD with Win7 x64 but on dialup.
Strictly speaking about the browsing speed, the P1 would beat the i7, just because the vast difference in connection speeds.
