    Quite a few games run some won't and some you will have lag with because of weird performance issues caused by a list of different things. That is pretty much the short answer for you. Some games you can fight with and they will run ok but I wouldn't expect a lot just yet.

    When the RC is released you should see a lot better compatibility and less weird performance issues and by then video drivers for 8 should be getting a bit more solid. For me the CP is to soon so I went back to 7 for stability because I need to get work done on this machine and couldn't and I was having a bit of issues with games I play. I am waiting on the release because I will get 8 and use it but I won't do that until the release now.
