How come most the notebooks on the ASUS sites have both Windows 7 and Windows 8 drivers section but the latest G75VX only has Windows 8 Drivers?

This is not the habit of ASUS. ASUS always gives its users freedom to have the latest drivers.

Please add Windows 7 Drivers section so I can build my clean install guide for this notebook also.

Additionally, please PM me if ASUS wants to send me a G75VX unit for testing and creation of the guide

The reason is because the G75VX was released for Windows 8 and not Windows 7 and i'd imagine pretty much all the hardware is exactly the same, except probably the CPU's, GPU's and HDD/SSD's...so, the drivers for the VW *should* in theory work between the 2...unless there are more hardware changes that I am not aware of.

I thought the G75VW uses a Realtek sound chipset? or does it use the same miserable VIA chipset with its crippled audio?

fyi. Haven't had a chance to try it myself, but there is a sticky thread "Clean Windows 7 on Asus G75VX (Win8 pre-installed)" (http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?29983-Clean-Windows-7-on-Asus-G75VX-(Win8-pre-installed)&country=&status=) on our forums if anybody wants to check it out.

This sites hilarious! So many jumping on the Win 8 hate wagon LOL. Before I got my new rig I read all the people on here talking about keeping Win 7. So I was a bit apprehensive about adopting 8. Thing is I never used 7 anyhow, always on XP prior so maybe it was easier for me. but im super impressed with 8 and think its really easy to use and very quick! Can do tons of stuff with this thing. People are quick to jump on the perpetuated fiction by some Linnex hipster that 8 is not their thing and all of a sudden, including me for a moment too! after lurking here for a while I thought "lets down grade", but after using 8 for a while its awesome!!. So glad I have it!! Try it you will like it.
