subfloor material choice

I'm wondering about the pros & cons of various subflooring materials... I'm replacing the joists, subfloor and flooring (and, well, just about everything else for that matter!) in an 1865 farmhouse. The basement currently gets somewhat damp and part of it gets downright wet when it rains hard, but I believe the absence of gutters is the cause of that and can and will be remedied. Still, there is/will be the possibility of dampness. We're going to be using wide plank pine flooring throughout. So, what to use for the subfloor? OSB? Regular plywood?

Advantec is more moisture resistant than plywood or OSB.
I would use Advantec.
