Windows 7 is probably lighter but windows 8 is generally a bit faster so im not really sure i would probably go windows 7 on that system just to be safe. But windows 8 would probably work just as well.

go win 7..
Win 7 is better suited to a traditional Nontouch screen/key/mouse setup..
Win 8 is better if you in a touch screen/tablet type system

(IMHO.. other opinions are available.. but I have a full Win 8 licence.. but went back to WIn7 on my traditional system.. so gives you an idea what I think.)
Cheers

Windows 8 would be better at modern gaming and it will have Dx12 support in the future windows 7 will not. windows 7 will be better at older games and you will only be able to play older games on that system anyways.

8's good, but I've found it's not quite as stable as 7. So, if you want tried and tested, go 7
