The naming is horrible, and the bugs between VS and the SDK are also horrible. I'm sorry.
SDK 7.0 == "Windows SDK for Windows 7 and .NET Framework 3.5"
SDK 7.1 == "Windows SDK for Windows 7 and .NET Framework 4"
So this is the correct link for building Python 3.3 and 3.4. It's also the one you want to keep building the latest code with the old compiler.

This information is all entirely correct. Worse, if you depend on the wrong runtime version, you'll get unexpected crashes and other errors.
