I've only done this once.
I used the vinyl J Channel on the GWB that butted up to the window.
It came out perfect(with a bead of caulk).

Exactly what I was going to recommend tear away bead. The tear away part keeps the mud from where you don't want it. Then when mud is dry tear the strip off and you have a nice straight line. Also a great product for anytime drywall meets another surface such as brick or stone. Lets you mud the edge of the drywall without getting mud on the brick, whice is a beatch to remove.
