  1. New system build

    I'm building a new system over the next few months. I've got a new case, PSU, DVR drive, and hard drive I just ordered the new motherboard, processor and ram. The next thing to order is the OS, and then I’ll use my current GTX 660 until my birthday on the first of the year when the wife is going to get me GTX 980. My question is, should I go with Windows 7 or 8. I’ve heard all the horror stories, and never bought into them in the past. Lots of dudes I respect say 8 is fine. The build so far. NZXT Phantom 410 series in gunmetal WD 1 TB 7200 64mb HD (I’ll add a SSD at some point.) EVGA SuperNOVA 750WS PSU I just ordered these parts. (My wife just let me, best wife evar!!) I7-4790k 4.0 LGA 1150 CPU ASUS Maximus VII Hero LGA 1150 Z97 MB 16 GB of G.Skill Trident X Series ddr3 2133 memory ASUS DVD Rom Drive It will be running a EVGA GTX 660 until I get the new video card. I’ll be adding whatever GTX 980 I can get a good deal on in January, and then things like cool neon fans, the SSD and a water cooling system. I plan to overclock it eventually. So what OS?
