I personally haven't had many problems with it. I would much rather it over 8.1. But if you're skeptical windows 7 is probably still regarded as one of the best versions, if you don't mind the dated UI.

I've heard from a lot folks that haven't had any issues and love it.

Btw i got the same case as you for my upcoming build, also thinking about getting the same card.

Yep, install Windows 10, I've got it and haven't had any issues yet.

Or if you want to get other OS, install Windows 7 ultimate x64 :)

Windows 95 mobile. JK. I would use Windows 10 or Linux/SteamOS depending on the games you play.

MS-DOS would be perfect for this build.

Jk. But if you don't like going with Windows 10 or aren't comfortable with going with it now, I would recommend going with Windows 7 for now and doing the free upgrade to 10 before July 2016. Yes, it still is a fairly new OS, so there are going to be some big bug issues that need to be fixed. But by say March or April, most of it will be resolved, so upgrading then would be optimal.

Windows 8.x is ok. The OS is great for gaming and is more refined than Windows 7 on the technical side. (Boot-up times, data transfer speeds, RAM usage, etc.) On the aesthetics side... Not so much. The tile UI doesn't appease to most users and is, for the most part, confusing and annoying.

SteamOS is a perfectly viable free OS that runs off Linux. While it doesn't support ALL Steam games, it supports many of the major ones.

Windows 10. You can actually tweak the things most people dislike about it. You can even make the UI more like Windows 7 if you really wanted to while keeping the additional benefits.

Debian 7 is good. What will the computer be used for?

Windows 10! There are plenty of guides on the net to lock down the information collection stuff and then it runs really well.
