GNOME provides the desktop and network environment. The window manager
provides window decorations e.g. Borders, Title Bars and anything
related with moving/resizing/opening/closing etc. windows.

It's a matter of personal preference really. As GNOME is quite heavy
resource-wise, I prefer lightweight window managers. I use Sawmill but
I suggest you experiment and find what suits you.

You can do most configuration from the GNOME Control Center applet
which allows you to switch between window managers and run their own
configuration tools.
