Which would be better? Windows 7 or Windows 8? I did hear that some Direct support would be limited on Windows 7. What is better for gaming?

Whatever future games is going to get optimized for and that's Windows 8.
Get Windows 8 or better yet the newer Windows 8.1

      Ok so I have Windows 7 right now and I plane on building a new PC in around 2-3 years. Should I upgrade to Windows 8 now or wait?

        Best solution

          If your going to upgrade in 2-3 years wait, until the next OS comes out.

              Ok thanks! My pc specs: i5 4570 Asus Z87-C Motherboard GTX 760 and 600w PSU. Would it be best to build a new PC then in 2 more years?

                  Doomed? How so?

                  Windows 8 is faster, more secure and has plenty new/improved features such as the task manager, storage spaces, fast-boot, file history, refresh etc etc

                  Windows 7 is 4 1/2 years old with only 1 year of mainstream support remaining.

                  Look past the start menu...
                  or just install Start8 if you hate it that much

                    Ok so I have Windows 7 but I heard that a new Windows OS might come out around next year. It seems like the current pattern is that a new OS from Microsoft is released every two years. Is this any what accurate? If so, I will go ahead and get that new OS instead of wasting my money on windows 8. The only real reason I wanted to know is because I am a huge Battlefield 4 fan and love that game. I heard that it would run better and was optimized for Windows 8. I just want the best performance from that game on my system.

                      The next OS is all "leaked information" and "unconfirmed sources" at the moment. Main rumour is for a Spring 2015 release.

                      If you already have Windows 7 it isn't worthwhile upgrading to Windows 8 unless you can get a cheap upgrade deal.

                        Most frequently asked question when people buying new pc is - Can I uninstall windows 8 and get windows 7? Windows 8 future is same as Windows Vista.

                          Sorry but how did Vista's future end?
