    Don't get me wrong, we're here to help, but if you know the minimum requirements and your system specs you can answer that question yourself. Moreover if your rig is Windows 7 capable, so it can run Windows 8 too.

    YES, YOU CAN RUN WINDOWS 8 ! GO FOR IT !

    Whichever version you have a legit license for is what I would strongly suggest.

    It's hard to say why that happened, but your hardware can easily handle Windows 8. My mom's computer is an old Athlon64 1800MHz | 1,5 GB | VGA GF5600 256MB and it runs very well. Anyways this is just my point, the choice is yours ! Good luck !

    Go for it! Just make sure it's what you wanna do. I was intending to install 8 on my Dell Inspiron 9400 Laptop, but it crashed. I ran the Windows 7 Advisor and it told me all I needed was another stick of Ram.
