Windows 8.1 or Windows 10?

I am building my very first build soon, and I am unsure whether to get Windows 10 or Windows 8.1. Help would be appreciated.

In case build is needed to be known, here is what it is - http://pcpartpicker.com/list/XQtqpb - I might be able to make some changes, like the 4690/4690K, an optical drive, and an improved PSU, the Rosewill Capstone, but I have no intentions of changing the build other then a bit, so do not suggest changes to my build.

I plan to get an RX 480 in the future, so that's the main reason I'm thinking of getting Windows 10 - Otherwise, if DX 12 didn't exist I'd probably get 8.1. Any feedback appreciated, build will be used for gaming.

Windows 10. Really no reason to get Windows 8.1 anymore.
