Here you go, first you'll want to make USB restore Drive Asus Backtracker (http://www.asus.com/supportonly/ASUS_Backtracker/#support_Download_36)Just in case you need to restore it to factory condition!

Then you want to study this thread if for G75/55 but apply to G750 (http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?28758-GUIDE-G55-G75-Upgrade-Notes&country=&status=)also, just make sure you have on hand the correct drivers you will need. Since Asus doesn't support Win 7 on the G750s you'll have to sort out the correct working drivers as per your hardware.

Most of us consider it an upgrade from Win 8 to Win 7

Intel Dude, I didn't find any reason to like Win 8 over Win 7, So upgrading to win 7 from win 8 is an upgrade for a lot of us. Sarcasm I guess you should understand that!

I still have one WS with Win 8 pro and a touch Screen. Been running since Nov 2012. None of us here using it are impressed. I have taken win 8 off my NB and Work WS.

From what I'm seeing about 8.1 it may be 8.2 before I'll even consider it again.
