I am thinking about upgrading my win 7 to 10, and have a few questions,


first my video card is a GeForce 8800GT, the nividia/GeForce driver site does not list a driver for windows 10, it only goes up to win 8....will this be an issue?


when i installed win 7 it installed the driver automatically, i didnt have to download it, will win 10 do the same?


second, is windows 10 "heavier" on resources the win 7....basically will my computer run slower on win 10?....cause it runs great on 7 so i dont want freezing during videos etc etc,

Download and run the Windows 10 Advisor for Windows 7.  This will tell you if there are incompatibility issues.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
