Hi guys and gals,

i was planning to get new PC, so is Windows 7 or Windows 8 (with start8 or similar) better for Gaming and Arts?

My soon-to-be PC: http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/p/Eels

Thanks, guys and gals!

They're pretty much the same, but for future proof, i'd say go for Win 8. Most of the major bugs have been fixed.

One last thing i need to ask you,
Which is better for Windows 8:
(OCM 32 or 64-bit)
(Full 32 or 64-bit)
(Pro 32 or 64-bit)
(Pro Full 32 or 64-bit)

and thank you very much!

Pro is useless for most people. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_8_editions There is no such thing as full (which refers to retail) for windows 8, there is just oem. It is incorrectly labeled on pcpartpicker but you will notice the links are the same. However you will want 64bit so you can use more than 4gb of ram.

So just oem 64-bit?
