Sticking with Win 7 - 64 bit because of FSX and IL-2. I have issues with letting go Haha! Don't judge me I just threw away my European Air War, Falcon 2.0, FC 2 CDs earlier this year - spring cleaning my wife called it. It was a very sad day for me.

windows 10 pro here.

Upgraded for free from 8.1 pro ( which is what i had for my custom build initially)

No regrets, was not a fan of 8.0 tablet metro interface. it offers some microsft exclusive store games, that were once only Xbox exclusive, and DX12 rendering . If had windows 7 or 8, i wouldn't be able to take advantage of the DX12 function of my Nvidia 1080.

My dillema with older games having supposed issues, with newer operating system is not there since istill got my old Windows 7 desktop around should i need it , but so far windows 10 has not yet prevented me from running older games.



Windows 10 64 bit,

Case/Tower: Corsair Graphite 760tm ,Asus Strix Z370- E Motherboard, Intel Core i7 8700k ( Noctua NH14S cooler),Crucial Ballistix DDR4 16gb ram (2400 mhz) , (Asus strix oc edition) Nvidia Gtx 1080 8gb , Evga g2 850 watt psu, Hardrives ; WD 1TB HDD, Samsung evo 850 pro 1TB SSD, Samsung evo 850 pro 512 gb SSD

Hi Sarge. For now a new video card with 4 gigs of memory or more ( video card with 2 gig memory is minimum) and more ram as well. 8 gig ram is minimum required. I have I7 6700k, gtx970 with 4gig, and 16gigs of ram and plays well on high settings
