    Which one and Why?

    Windows 7 and Windows 8 .

    Which one is better in gaming performance and why ?


    Also does it really matter 8 or 8.1 ?

    Does it matter if I am using 32 bit while I have 4 gb ram and 64 bit based processor ?

    Please not random answers

    Well i recently switched from windows 7 to windows 8.1. Can say at first win 8.1 looks really weird and badly organized, but i got used to it. It has some compability issues and it`s actually more heavy on your machine than people claim it to be. It has more bugs than win 7 and I still get the BSOD. I personaly prefer windows 7.

    I would recommend windows 7 for gamming, since your system isn`t that powerful anyway. I`m on a laptop with these specs:
    8gb ram
    Nvidia GTX 880m 4gb
    i7 3,4ghz quad core

    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.

    As i said 7. Also depends ingame. If it is Fps game depends from graphic card and ping depends from Internet connection.

    The games I play can be played on Windows 8 but my question is for example if I am playing a game on windows 8 and I get 80 FPS will I get 100 FPS on Windows 7 ?

    That strongly depends on your configurations, settings and graphics of the game. Usually I get around 80 min. on max settings on most of the games, drops to 60 when the game is more heavy. But the video maria.garefis sent pretty much explains it.

    Window 8 has more gadgets and features, thus slower compared to Window 7.

    Was meant to say configuration, as to your PC build as a whole. But the difference isn`t that much as shown in the video, but you definitely feel it when you switch. Windows 8 basicly just takes up more memory on your hard drive and needs more memory to run all of it`s processes and thus slowing the machine in general.
