Hi everyone once again!

I'm wondering what would be the best gaming OS at the moment. I'm only talking about Windows and includes all versions like the Windows 8.1 the Windows 7 Ultimate or even the Windows XP.

Thanks a lot in advance!

I have not used 8.1 but have used 8 and 7 and XP. I like 7 alot better than the rest. Whether it changes fps? I doubt it.

The operating system will not affect gaming. The only way it could is if the operating system hogs memory like Vista. If you are gaming on an APU then get Windows 8.1, Windows 8.1 is optimized to run smooth with them. (About 20% performance increase from Windows 7)

I personally use Windows 8.1. It has really fast boot times versus Windows 7. If you're using an SSD to boot with then expect booting times within the blink of an eye. I would ignore any hate towards Windows 8, under the hood it is much better.

Ok thanks a lot :) ! I knew there wouldn't be much fps gained from the OS but I wanted to know what's the one that's the most optimized for gaming tasks?

They all use DirectX to display 3D graphics, it's the same across all of them. None of them are optimized for gaming except what I said earlier about the APUs. There are though more games available for Windows than Linux or Mac.

Yeah for me neither Mac or Linux can reach Windows level, afterall all games try to reach as many people as they can and almost everyone has Windows. Thanks once again!

If you're gaming then you want 8GB of RAM. Also the Windows 8 Skype app is really bad and it uses a lot of RAM.

Skype wise issue I would suggest you use team speak instead I don't find Skype comfortable while gaming,
I would choose between windows 7 ultimate and windows 8.1

Is TeamSpeak lighter? does it run more smothly? Yeah that's exactly my doubt, would 8.1 be better than the ultimate?
