Windows 8.1 adds extra speed and efficiency for gaming and provides everything I need. Still waiting for Windows 10 though.
8.1 Pro 64-Bit, Plain no Extra **** = Worth it.
This is actually windows 10 now...
I like it but want to see 10.
Great so far, but im still new to it..will updated my star, once fully adapt
Runs Great Quick install time for me
An excellent OS for gaming. Switching from Windows 7 I was skeptical of course, but I don't regret it. I used a program to revive the start menu, and I simply ignore the Metro screen. I get genuinely uncomfortable thinking of it. Watch out for drivers, though. Some devices (such as certain wireless cards) don't have drivers for Win 8.1, which is a simple fix however. Other problems include the charms bar and options menus that slide in (network interface) or others that pop up, (volume controls) creating an inconsistent experience.
I originally hated it, but its growing on me. It is quite snappy. And the tile system is easily bypassed. System settings are well organized.
Got it for Direct X 11.5. But will probably get a touchscreen monitor for the one feature that everybody doesn't even use. Yeah, I bet some of you didn't even know that you can ping with the touchscreen, huh? Try it. You'll like that feature.
