    I basically want to use a windows setup to play PC games and use some online stuff that doesn't work on mavericks, but I DON'T want windows to be my only operating system. My questions are:

    Do I have to backup all of my data before going through with parallels?
    Will mavericks still be there, or will windows be my only operating system?
    Does the windows system work like an extra application like photoshop?

    Parallels just adds a window to your Mac desktop with the Windows operating system. It's like having a PC and a Mac all in one.

    Does it take up any space? Does any windows operating system work with it, and can I play pc games that way?

    It does take some space, just like any operating system. If you want to play 3d games, you might want to go with Bootcamp, unless you have a faster computer. What is your hard drive size, ram, and processor?
