    Mainly a question about Windows 8

    I've been ruffling through every cheap decent buy and I saw this posted in the general section that was cheap due to cyber monday: Newegg.com - CyberpowerPC Gamer Ultra 2138 Desktop PC AMD FX-Series FX-8120(3.1GHz) 8GB DDR3 1TB HDD Capacity AMD Radeon HD 6670 1GB Windows 8
    Please tell me about Windows 8, can it be uninstalled from the Hard Drive? Can I reinstall windows 7? Can I possible downgrade it? Or if not, how is windows 8 with majority of games? I read an article saying Valve claimed windows 8 was a catastrophe for gamers. True? Anyone who answers these questions I would greatly appreciate. Answers from multiple people is welcome! Thanks guys!

    I think it Windows 8 can definitely be uninstalled from your hard drive, the thing I think you need to worry about that is that you will need to buy a new Windows 7 OS again, which can be a heavy cost. I heard that Windows 8 is really bad for gaming because it is a completely a different new setup, whats really changed is that the start bar from Windows 8 is gone, which has been a huge use in the past for Windows OS. I think that you should just stick with Windows 7 or Vista, personally because its just simpler and efficient, Windows 8 really does bring a new look and feel but it seems that they just copy and pasted their Windows phone OS and put it on a computer. I dont know if this is against the forum rules or not (forgive me if they are), but here are some articles that I found that will deepen your knowledge about downgrading and the truth behind Windows 8 for gaming Downgrading from Windows 8 to 7: What you need to know | PCWorld https://www.pcworld.com/article/2621...o_success.html You're Being Lied To: Windows 8 Isn't Bad for Gaming

    That helps quite a bit. I'll give Windows 8 a shot first, if it's shit, I'll just buy windows 7. I know someone who could hook me up with an official version for 75$.
