Also, why do you need pro. To me it seems like you are spending more money for no reason. Also it would be really helpful if you called the components by their "street name", Noone know what 02G-P4-2678-KR means. The most I was able to figure out was that it's a 2gb evga card. I still had to look up to tell exactly what it was to be able to help.

From what I am reading windows 8 is good. There are a few things that make it barely slower, but I am guessing those will be fixed in a few updates.

Windows 8 is fine, it hiccups in a few games but nothing that can't be fixed through updates. It's up to user preference, really.

Look up the game benchmarks before you post nonsense. While it is on tablets, it works fine on computer and in many case the frame rate is faster on games.

there is no start menu, anything you post in reply is invalid. Microsoft pushing "apps" on to desktops is just horrible for the pc gaming community and desktop in general. MS doesn't deserve purchases of windows 8.

See, that's an opinion. Yeah, some people hate the fact that there's no start menu, yet they don't realize that there are work arounds if you really can't get over it. A lot of people that have windows 8 get over it fast. Web browser performance is snappier and most games show a slight increase in the benchmarks as well. And please tell me, how are apps bad? Really, how do they impact your PC performance in any way, shape or form? Point of the matter is, Windows 8 is snappier, more customizable, and in general is better for most games (and will be for the others soon as well).
