Does dual booting W7 & W8.1 affect CPU or GPU performance in benchmarking? Or would having each OS on it's own drive give better results?

Dual booting will have no impact on CPU or GPU performance. Multiple OSs is the way to go. I personally run Win 7, 8.1, and two 10's. One of the Windows 10 drives is my daily OS for everything other than benchmarking/overclocking. The other Windows 10 drive and previous OS versions are strictly for benchmarking/overclocking. Better to crash while using an OS that you don't use daily for regular stuff.

Installing the drives on separate drives is not necessary, but something I do. You can create partitions for each OS that you choose to use and go from there.
