I've been using Windows 7 for a while, and stuck with it. But I've been thinking about upgrading recently.

Is it worth the money to upgrade? Why?

If you already had 8 it would be an automatic yes recommendation to upgrade. Since you're used to the "classic" look on 7 it comes down to your tolerance of the new UI. 8.1 does make things more usable compared to 8.0 and makes the new interface easier to adjust to. Speed wise it's quick and efficient, and it's a stable version of Windows. Your hardware will fly on it.

Not getting much for upgrading from 7. maybe dx 11.2, and if you have an AMD processor.

Windows 8 doesn't use the Aero Glass feature which increases video and memory performance. If I was you I'd upgrade instantly.

Yes it can be disabled. But I'd still back up my games and important files and move to Windows 8.1.
