W8 or W7 For Gaming Pc?

Hi guys I'm building a new gaming rig for around 2k and was wondering if it was pretty important to go with w8 or if it really didnt matter. I dont mind learning some things new but I dont want to have alot of issues compatability.

  1. I'm using 8.1 and not had any real problems gaming wise, I find it a tad sharper/faster than w7 but that maybe placebo......
  2. Got a bump in fps in BF3 and BF4 and microstutterting was gone when i switched to Win 8.1. As for compatibility, almost 90% of the software is Win 8.1 ready.
  3. In terms of games, the main games I know of that have issues are fallout 3 and, at least for me, I had trouble starting Battlefront 2. Although, at the same time, these games didnt necessarily run perfectly in 7 either, so that might be more of a game/disc issue than an OS issue
