I'm definitely leaning in that direction, But I will say I hate all the useless crap in W10 that I will never use on a gaming PC. But after hours of research it may be best as the basic W10 OS has no ill effects on gaming and does have some future gains. On the bright side I don't have to look at or interface with it while gaming!!

We Gone: one thing I don't think you told everyone yet is that you already have Windows 10 on two different laptops and you hate it. So, I think that everyone should be helping you arrive at a decision based on knowing that you already know that hate Windows 10. In other words, I think they need to tell you whether it's really worth it. As you said, since this rig will be for gaming only, you'll only have to deal with Windows 10's crap when starting the computer up and then going to launch the game that you'd like to play. Oh, and of course you'll have to deal with it again after playing the game when you go to turn the computer off. So like you said, fortunately, you won't even be thinking about Windows 10 while actually playing the game that you launched.

 

So, y'know, I think that the answer is "go with Windows 10" because it's not like you'll be using this computer for other things. You made a good point in saying that! So, I guess the choice may be obvious: go with Windows 10. That way, you will have full DirectX12 support when that time comes, which means you'll have total peace of mind that you can get any new game and not have to worry about it.

It's a computer!

W10 it will be!!

Well decision made time to get this off my plate and move on to the other more enjoyable job of what parts to get! I want to thank everyone for the reply's

@TwoCables. Thanks your right on the mark.

Just the fact that you have no right to chose on an OS is bad enough, but than force it on you by dropping support of a great OS like W7 (Vista was so bad I never used it stuck with xp until W7) just has left a bad flavor in my mouth. Some of us do not need all the fluff and blot to use a PC! Just to give you some background I started in the DOS 3.0 days.


Sorry for the rant but this was why it made a hard and long searching decision for me. thumb.gif

Some physics benchmarks are faster in Win7 than Win10

For me, I'm bothered by far more than just the fluff.

 

Anyway, you're welcome. I'm glad that I was able to participate in helping you.

For me, it's the way the OS seems to say, "I think you are a completely computer-illiterate moron who has an IQ of about 5." Then, combine that with forced Windows Updates, advertisements right inside Windows itself and other stupid and annoying things, it quickly becomes an OS that I will avoid for as long as I possibly can.

Wait, what? He has Win 10 on two laptops and is still wondering whether he should try it on his desktop? It's akin to hating broccoli and still wondering whether you should eat it (I love broccoli).

 

I hate Win 10 so I am not even entertaining the idea of installing it on any of my systems.
