You should download the image that is appropriate for whichever computer you run the SDK on; in most cases, that'll be x86. You should also install the Intel HAXM package; it speeds up emulation performance quite a bit (provided you're using an x86 image, that is).

Yes, you need the Play Services; that's what the other question you asked yesterday is all about, isn't it?
