Actually... Everything is a lot smoother/works better for me on Windows 7.
Also had problems with various other programs on Win 8.1 (including Unigine Heaven 2.5 - would not even open).
I wanted to try the 14.4 drivers but they work on Windows 8.1and not 7. Man I can't win. Lol.

I had the same problems. I'm on nvidia. I did get it working flawlessly after tinkering around, but something that was going to take me 15mins, took me 2hrs on Windows retarded 8

Oh BS and you know it. You don't have to like Windows 8 but don't spread misinformation--that dude had software problems but none of them were inherent to Windows 8. I think I can tell you for sure that Unengine benches and everything else works just fine under 8 if not better.

I've been on 8.1 since release and never had an issue either.

In fact, my friend who bought my old GTX 780 reference card is running Windows 7. He just installed the new 337 driver and is now having trouble in World of Tanks with a lot of stuttering. He had to fall back to the old WHQL driver to remove the stuttering. I fired up WoT with the new beta driver, and guess what: no stuttering whatsoever on Win8.1.

Most newer games are being developed on Win8 and 8.1. It makes sense to switch if you're a gamer. thumb.gif

Nope!

I had 0 software problems - and still had problems with win8 and win8.1 (and yes I've been on win8 on my 2nd HDD since release)

Worst OS (check up the stats) in windows' history.
It performed worse in sales than vista did.
Nuff said.

You get higher fps in almost everything using windows 8.1 vs 7.
And the 3 second computer start up vs windows 7 taking for ever is nice.
All the side windows and panels and start bar is pure garbage in windows 8 though.

Is one of those things that is pointless debating. Either like and use it or stick to 7, no debate required really. Personally been on windows 8 from consumer preview to pro on day of release to 8.1, never a single software or hardware issue at any stage of that development. Personally never understood the "metro" hate, it is my start menu,all provided apps deleted/disabled and everything else is one click on rainmeter on a second screen. If not to personal taste no one is forced to migrate but the hatred is laughable imo.

Let me know how it goes bro!
Just make sure you don't let win8 install your drivers for you (it can cause problems - especially with GPU)

I wouldn't have trusted it to that anyway.
