I paid a little more to get my Surface Pro 3 with Windows 8.1, and I haven't had any problems gaming on it, granted I'm not playing intense games like The Witcher or anything.
Still, are you sure you want to build a new system now with Zen and Kaby Lake due out in October, and Microsoft apparently relenting and giving support to Windows 7 and 8.1, as well as dramatic improvements coming to everyone with 14nm FinFET?
This I was not aware of. Thanks. > Intel, IBM Dueling 14nm FinFETS | EE Times
I almost pulled the trigger last year when I acquired my 290. My real goal is to improve my motherboard (Intel DX58SO) and get the best/latest Intel I7 processor. I am glad I waited...and will do so now. What changes will be coming to motherboards with these new offerings? Which motherboard supplier would you recommend for a non-overclocker/like it the way it is computer? Any particular board? Remember this is with a Intel processor.

Win 8.1 pro, no gaming issues for me.
Plenty of Tut's on http://eightforums.com , for trimming the fat off it.
As for mobo, my last two upgrades (and probably next) were Gigabyte ultra durable series.
