    I think using a virtual machine is safer because if you are using it and get a virus or bsod and are rendered unbootalbe  you can just reinstall the virtual machine's os and be glad that was not your actual pc.

    a vm because like you said you can re-install it if it gets a virus but the bad thing is they go slow

    That's not totaly true I use vista ultimate sp1 in vmware workstation and give it 908 or so ram and it runs ok considering that vmware does slow down my pc a little. I also only have 2gigs of ram in my pc.
