I love Win8 for the way it handles my i7 when I'm transcoding tons of video. It games fairly well, also, no different than Win7- exactly the same, if I were to attempt to do a true comparison. If games ever make better use of multithreading, Win8 will be the way to go.
Okay, thank you! BTW, what do you think of the new GUI for Windows 8? I heard some reviews that say its too much based on a mobile platform, not a pc platform.
