For GW2, there isn't much difference between windows 8.1 vs windows 7. I've got a laptop with 8.1 and two other desktops with 7, and GW2 seems to run about equally well on each. Since Windows 10 is coming out soon and will be a free upgrade from either, it probably doesn't matter either, so I would recommend going with whichever option is cheaper if you have a choice.
Other things to consider:
Pro's for 8.1: Seems to boot slightly faster and it offers support for touchscreens.
Pros for 7: Interface seems easier to use / more intuitive, especially if you've gotten familiar with previous versions of windows.
