crysis has always been about trying to push the boundaries though
most other AAA titles are still using directx 9 as the base and adding in a little directx 10/11 as an afterthought
some companies are starting to announce they're gonna drop directx 9 support soon though thankfully
They already did. Even Activision finally released one without dx9.
ZeniMaxx is the only major one left that I can tell still releasing dx9 games.

Several sites mention there is practically no difference in gaming experience between Windows 7 and Windows 8.
My question to you guys is: is there a difference? noticeable? and is it preferable to upgrade for gaming-sake?
(and not for better performance and memory management, boot time increases etc already in Windows 8)
Load times do seem improved for gaming in W8, but performance on a same app basis won't be much different.
