You can download Windows 8.1 Industry Pro for free from Microsoft dreamspark. It's basically the same thing as Windows 8.1 but has some other fancy buttons and such.
First you sign up for Microsoft (or log in if you have a account). Then you go to the dreamspark page and confirm you have a .edu address and download Windows 8.1 from the software catalog.
Unfortunately for the first timers like me you have to download it to a usb and I know it was a challenge for me.
I hope this can really help some people save $80+ dollars on their rig and buy that step up gpu or take your loved ones on a fancy dinner!
