Ok, so I'm currently building my first build, and I can't decide whether to clone the windows 7 (Home Premium) onto my new computer, or get Windows 8. Windows 8 is about 100 dollars canadian, and I was hoping just to clone windows 7 so I can have a larger budget dedicated to my graphics card. Is this a good idea (BTW my budget is 600 dollars CANADIAN), or would it be better to get a fresh copy of windows 8?

Don't even bother with 8... If you can use 7, use it.

I heard windows 8 is faster in some games, is the difference significant?

Not really. It's good for about 1fps in some cases, but the usability is crap compared to 7 and there's still some compatibility issues in some games and apps (much better than it was, but still present)

But the thing is I want more budget for my video card (msi r9 270). But I believe the win8 is only $40 if upgrading from windows 7 to windows 8. Is this true? (btw I'm perfectly fine with the tiled menus)
