Minimum requirements to run windows 8 on your system are 1 ghz processor, 1 GB ram, and 16 GB for 32 bit and 20 GB for 64-bit at least. Now you will think seeing these requirements that whether these are recommended specs for playing a game or what!!

But if you are still feeling that after installation your system is lagging or freezing than you can disable the windows graphics options or you can try other versions of O.S.

For gamers it is advisable that please check that your graphics card is supported by windows 8 or not do whatever you can do install drivers or anything but just be sure before switching to windows 8 because many users have reported that the games they played on windows 7 without a crash , those games are crashing on windows 8.

whatever is the Windows 8 Public response but Our take is that if you love windows 7 than stick to it for now because windows 8 has only some minor tweaks and better GUI ,also windows 8 will have compatibility with many software. So better stick with win 7 for now.
