Windows 8 for Gaming

I just bought windows 8 pro at bestbuy for $70 because they no longer sell windows 7.  Before I open it and install it, is it good for gaming?  If not will i be able to downgrade to windows 7 for free?





I have windows 8 and have had no problems with gaming, So I wouldn't worry about it to much. You will not be able to downgrade for free unless you have a copy of Windows 7 laying around.
