So I am finally getting the parts together for a new pc and while reading the manual for my Gigabyte z87n-wifi I saw an option called "fast boot" now I already plan on installing windows 8 pro using a usb stick in UEFI mode but after googling fast boot I kind of confused myself and have no idea what I need to get it working, the last pc I built was 10 years ago so I am a bit lost here.

 

 

Thanks

I think fastboot there just refers to skipping some boottime checks. most BIOSes have an option for it.

I also read something about a GOP enable graphics card is needed too.

 

In reality though is the speed increase worth it?
