Well you are welcome to use Win8...I just don't want to use Windows 8, period. There is exactly one driver available for 4870x2 for Windows 8 where the clocks are still broken at boot using MultiGPU legacy cards and you are completely stuck going forwards or backwards with it. I even have Windows 8 x64 ISO's although god knows what for..To me it's just a marketing gimmicked over-hyped turkey. I just don't want to use it/install it because if you are happy with what you have and it does everything that Windows 8 does already, why change ?!?
