So im going to build a new pc mainly for everyday use, gaming, video/picture editing, youtube, surfing the web, etc. I'm was planning on getting Windows 8. It seems bearable, but then i heard that Windows 8 cannot run modern games like BF3, Black Ops 2, Skyrim, etc. is this true? Should i just get Windows 7? I hear Windows 8 is faster though, but if it cant run games, then theres no chance i'll be getting Windows 8. SO can Windows 8 run games?

I'm running windows 8, no issues at all so far.

Games:
World of Warcraft
Borderlands2
Dota2
Metro: Last Night
Guild Wars 2
Skyrim
Diablo3

Those are the ones I can confirm, in my case, are working fine.

All the games in my steam library (27) run just as good on 8 as they did in 7.
