Forgive me for being new... But I would like to install Windows 8. Where can I download all the drivers needed for sound, graphics, video, USB and stuff?

This might be not helpful enough but I read somewhere that NVIDIA is releasing beta drivers that support windows 8. So you should be able to find some drivers that are specifically designed for windows 8. But in a mean time, the best way to figure it out is to install windows 7 and install the drivers to see if they are compatible. My experience was when windows 7 first released; some driver installers were recognized by windows 7 but some weren't.

In short, if you really want to try out windows 8, you have to take risks.

This should apply for all of G series:
