Would love to try this but i'm just not sure where to begin. I guess a dual boot is the go (currently on win7) but scared ill mess things up.
Terrific! They need to decouple gaming from windows, especially now with how windows 8 shows that microsoft are just guessing how a computer should work
It's pretty straight forward these days, actually! It'll just give you a dual boot option after you pop your PC on.
Give it a go, it's so much easier to get used to now! :D
