Hi All -

Just purchased this machine and I'm leaning toward Win8. I know there are a few threads out there but they are a little dated. What are some recent experiences? What chipset, ATK, nVidia, etc drivers seem to work. Do the G75 Windows 8 drivers work? Thanks in advance and happy gaming!

A lot of the Win 7 drivers worked in the pre-releases, so I would assume that they would still work, so long as you could get them to install. To be specific, the Windows 8 kernel is very similar to the Windows 7 kernel, so drivers should still work.

Thanks for the replies. Anyone else out there that has installed the Windows 8 drivers for the G75 models. Guess I'm anal, but I'd like to stick with Win8 drivers where possible.

Received today. I'll be starting the Win8 install Sunday night. Going to try and stick with newer model Win8 drivers where possible. Will post my experience.
