To answer the question, "X ga [verb]tai" and "X o [verb]tai" is something of a long-standing controversy. There are some who will say that "ga" is the only correct form, but many people use "o" in everyday speech. These speakers probably tend to use "ga" for extra emphasis ("Kore ga kaitai": "I want to buy this (not that thing over there)"), and "o" when they feel that no such emphasis is warranted. Still, the safer option is to always use "ga" until you know you can get away with using "o".

Thank you very much for the reply. I had no idea that there is this controversy surrounding the use of "ga" versus o.
Moreover, i would like to thank you for the additional benefit in your reply for pointing out my error, which should have been "desu ga."
Happy New Year.
