Been reading about new AMD ZEN cpu's and how they supposedly will out perform intel 5960x or something similar.
They say the AMD ZEN cpu is $500 about half of the intel cpu which is around $1k.
Be interesting if this is true cos then we may all finally have a worthy alternative!
Which will push intels prices down ! Yeah !
So in the next 4 months we will will know for sure. Cant wait !!!!
long live the P U T E Y ! :)

I upgraded to win 10 but as my pc is so old I can't really give you any clues. Haven't really had any issues with it though.
Did I just say that?

No issues with Windows 10 both Personally and in the workplace.
Sadly a lot of upgrades from Windows 7/8 will nearly all be non UEFI... which is not ideal.
Update your BIOS and a fresh install > Upgrade if you can =]
