I noticed this while working through a build. not only are they compatible, I can show you a picture of my system with this configuration: https://imgur.com/a/hTerEtT

Not sure if this matters, since windows 7 ends in 6 months anyway......

ill use windows 7 after official support ends. windows 10 is a **** show. i used it for about 4 years in a row, just switched back and it honestly.... just works. cant say that for windows 10. its always something. windows store is absolute garbage. games stuttered in three different versions of windows 10 (clean installs each time). the whole 'lets replace things that work well with app-like crap' idea is, well, crap. forced windows updates annoys me beyond belief. these among other things are making me cling on to a dying OS that is probably not terribly safe anymore. I can deal with that. I cannot deal with windows 10 anymore in its current state. its bloated and works about as well as my brother's 1992 Ford Ranger.... functional, but not smooth, reliable, or nice.

You can get it to work but it is not officially supported.
