Not so much. I run all 3 and can use either happily. 10 will run most games just as well as 7. I believe the new games coming out will be made for 7 and 10, so there shouldn't be a problem if you want 10. You may want to read this thread, List of Games working on Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

This isn't meant to be a big "which OS is best' post and it will not turn into one. I happen to like both and could be happy with either. To me it appears that 10 is on its way to becoming the Windows OS of the future, and the newer games will be written for Windows 10. Windows 7 is an excellent OS, but will lose support from Microsoft in 4 years and 10 is the new OS. Use whichever you would like, but if it were me, I would look stronger at 10. 10 is the future, like it or not.

you do not want Windows 8 or even 8.1 , get Windows 10 Pro 64 Bit to go with the new platform.

You will never figure out how to put 7 on the new chipset

You can put Windows 7 on.

If you have a PS2 mouse and keyboard, you shouldn't have any trouble at all.

If you have a USB mouse and keyboard, you will have to work around a driver problem for the installation. Win 7 will run fine after you get it installed.

There are varying ways to get around the driver problem.

1: Your motherboard's manufacturer may have a downloadable tool to inject the correct USB drivers into your Windows installer. I know Gigabyte has such a tool.

2: Your motherboard may have a setting to emulate PS2 through USB ports. I know Asrock motherboards have such a setting.

3: You may be able to enable legacy USB mode in the motherboard's BIOS.

Or possibly some other method. You should go to your motherboard manufacturer's web site and look for information--possibly a post in a forum or FAQ; possibly a downloadable tool in the support section for your particular motherboard.
