Hey,

Just got a brand new ASUS Maximus V Formula MoBo on the way and thinking of trying Windows 8 as I will be rebuilding my PC rig.

I heard it may need a BIOS update for Windows 8?

Can someone explain how I need to do this, before I run into problems?

What happens if you install Windows 8 as it is?

Thanks

Doesn't really answer my question...

I heard updating BIOS is dangerous so I need to know if I should update or can it just be installed as is?
I looked up in Google but there is nothing I could find that explains this to me...

'Give me one GOOD reason why you would install windows 8!'
I don't know...why did people install XP, Vista or Windows 7 when it came out?

Vista got poor reviews but when my XP OS kept crashing every time I when on to Vista and found it much better and didn't want to go back to XP ever again and that bs about being unstable or incompatible? I didn't experience any of that...Windows 7 kicked ass though, yes.

I have a laptop with Windows 7 so I wouldn't mind trying Windows 8 is probably my simples answer...you don't try you don't know.
