There is no gaming benefit for one vs the other. m 0 l Best solution qewee May 20, 2013 7:26:02 PM First use windows 7 Professional 64 it's lighter than Ultimate then you can ubgrade it to Win 8 Professional. For my opinion I prefers Win 8 Pro it's faster than Win 7 Share Related resources Windows 7 Ultimated VS Win 8.1 Gaming? - Forum Windows 7 vs windows 8 for gaming rig - Forum Windows 8.1 vs Windows 7 for gaming (compatibility and performance) - Forum Windows 7 vs Windows 8 Editing/Gaming - Forum Windows 8.1 vs. 7 for gaming and performance? - Forum Can't find your answer ?

But that's just my opinion it's totally up to you. m 0 l HackerX May 21, 2013 12:26:52 AM Thanks guys!!! I will be going for Win 7 Pro 64 bit. m 0 l qewee May 21, 2013 1:37:27 AM DrCOCONUTS said:Windows 7 because a lot more game platforms support it and not every platform yet supports Windows 8..

If you install Win 7 Pro then you upgrade it to Win 8 it will be like this (Win 8 Based 7), so you will get the game platforms supports and other Win 7 features except Start button m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
