Stop making stupid statements like "Windows 8 is a garbage cause of aero" cause you can turn it off (it's tricky, but still it's worth upgrading from Win7 and do the trick).
This is false.
Borderless windowed mode in Win7 = you can run without vsync.
Borderless windowed mode in Win8 = Vsync is forced on just like vsync is forced on at the desktop
I despise vsync enough where I can't even use an OS with it forced on for web browsing.
When you claim you can "turn it off", that involves killing Desktop Window Manager service and another service, which then makes your entire desktop and taskbar disappear and causing other problems. Win8 is not a gaming OS whatsoever.
I personally don't run any game in full screen mode unless forced to, only borderless.
Everything works fine on win 8.1 for me, mmr shows no difference between win7 and win8.
V-sync off works just as good in all windowed mode in win 8.1 vs win7 for me. (Never ever run v-sync on even with a 144hz monitor)
Win 8.1 works great for gaming, however I don't enjoy modernui etc so I use win7 as main OS because I love the interface and yes AERO always on, I am not a hobo that use basic ui.
You are just very very OCD regarding stuff like this, I am picky but thank god I would not revolve my life around something like this
But then again everyone here knows you are something "else" from all your posts ;>Edited by Nivity - 4/17/14 at 12:41am
