    That`s weird actually, I have 8gb like i`ve mentioned in the previous replays, but 7,88gb are usable :O So yeah, for your configuration I suggest windows 7 and I`m sure you are used to it anyway and performance wise would be the better choice

    and I still get some bad benchmarks and loading time, becuase of the way windows 8 is build. Also you get some compability issues with windows 8.1, for example i had issues with counter strike 1.6, had to change the start up settings. And some software doesn`t support windows 8.1 yet.

    Stop writing bullshit with no source, there's no difference in gaming whether you use win 7 or 8 or 8.1 unless your PC runs on oil. In that case, you shouldn't have been able to install either of those in the first place. There's no difference if the game could run on XP.
    I'd suggest 64-Bit because some new games require more than 4GB of RAM. You could install both a 32-Bit and 64-Bit version if you have the extra space to be able to run both old and new games.

    i'd say they're about equal, but you should stick with win 7 due to your computer rig
    here's some benchmarks

    There is actually application for windows 8 that restores the windows 7 start menu, it kinda works actually, I`m using it myself, since windows 8 is just fucked up >.<

    To be honest, I only found troubles with Windows 8 for gaming on visual novels and Age of Empires 2 HD.
    But there are always workarounds. the rest is perfect for me.

    For me Windows 8 will suit you fine about Windows 8.1 upgrade, unless you really need it, dont upgrade.

    Windows 8.1 for everything but 7 if you're really into the design. For me I have both on an SSD so I can boot into whatever one I want. I use StartIsBack on Windows 8.1 because I hate the Metro interface. The simple layout of Windows 8 is very appealing to me but I still find myself using Windows 7 in most cases just because I'm used to it but I'll be making the full switch once I get my new CPU.
