It really depends on how much water you need to be able to produce a day, higher gpd doesn't mean it's a better RO, or just means it can produce more per day.
As far as number of stages, typically the more stages the purer the water. If your source water is really bad, you need more stages. As far as this goes, the more stages, the better.

RO's come in many different stages 2 to like 5 or 6. Unless your talking about RO vs. RODI. The DI unit is a deionization unit, this system yields the best water, 0 Total dissolved solids.
Just an RO system may still have some TDS.

I got mine at Costco then found that I needed DI filter too. I needed it to remove phosphates that fed a algae I was trying to get rid of.
