Is My motherboard compatible with windows 8.1?

Building my first gaming rig and the motherboard I had chosen had some negative reviews on new egg stating it wasent compatible with windows 8.1 64bit.

Is this true? Do I need a new motherboard?

Motherboard: MSI Z87-G45 Gaming ATX LGA1150 Motherboard ($138.98 @ Newegg)

Operating System: Microsoft Windows 8.1 - OEM (64-bit) ($99.99 @ Newegg)

Please help.

  2. A new motherboard would not be necessary unless you have the three main requirements for Win8: RAM, HDD space and you should have a processor that could handle it.
