    windows 10 worth the upgrade?

    Strictly from a GAMER's perspective, is it worth upgrading? I know it will support dx12 of course. But are there any "benchmarks" out there to showcase the Windows 10 FPS increase in games. Is there enough concrete evidence that the upgrade should be a "no-brainer" ?
