Hi, I am currently building a new rig, however the OS I was going to use (8.1) apparently has a lot of issues running Skyrim, after looking at steam and the Nexus. Is this true? And would it be better to stick with windows 7?
Skyrim isn't compatible with Windows 8.1. While you might be able to get it to work, plenty of people have had issues with it and since it's labled incompatible you're testing your luck. Upgrade at your own risk guys.
