Currently in the process of purchasing a brand new gaming-PC. What OS should I buy? Win7, or the new Win 8 ?
(Piracy is not an option.)

ive had no problems with win 7.

And i dont like buying new OS's until there broken in and patched a bit. That said ive not even looked at 8.



Im running 24GB RAM
2X2GB video cards using crossfire

and every game i have runs at ultra, no problem.

Looking a bit closer, it turns out there's no easy way to purchase a installation disk for Win8 -everything available seems to be upgrade-disks or -downloads for vista or Win7, so Win7 it is.
I'm ordering a self-assemble PC, that being slightly more expensive, but packing 32GB RAM in place of every other model, which has 16 GB at most.

Oh No 24GB RAM? What are you running on that rig?

Anders, I'd go for Win7 ATM.

Yes, I picked Win7. I'll buy an upgrade later, maybe.

This is my new rig. Ignore the panda-stuff.
