    Windows 8 Installation Guidelines


    My system spec
    Windows7 ultimate 64bit
    dual core e5200 2.5ghz
    4GB transcend ram@dual channel
    Nvidia GeForce gt 520 1GB
    DG31PR intel board.
    I want to install windows 8, i have the min req. fulfilled but later i don't want my system slowing down because ill be using heavy AutoDesk and Adobe application. I fear the compatibility of the programs may match or not and also that it may hinder my performance.
    I'll be help full if anyone who uses autodesk and adobe applications can tell me what to do and what are the alternatives.

    Not a complete answer, but try the Win 8 Upgrade Assistant. And, check on the compatibility of the programs you are concerned about on their websites. See if the manufacturers claim Win 8 compatibility or offer updates. You also might find this forum link interesting.

    Autodesk 2010 and + products are supported on Windows 8. Now, you can't expect heavy rendering running fast on a e5250 CPU, this with any OS
