Specs: Windows 7, 36 gb
Will Windows-7 work with Intel core I7 7700K, as I have several programs that I need Windows-7, and they will not work on Windows-10.
Thank You.

If i had the choice idd go with the 60% extra performance, but hey, its up to you

Yes, just make sure that whatever motherboard you choose has all drivers available for Windows 7 and then you will be fine.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

why would you buy a 7700k when the 8000 series intel cpu is out:

i7 8700 is not overclockable, the 8700k is, but you do need a motherboard that supports overclocking

Please note that I looked up the following on Gigabyte web site:
Z370 motherboards have drivers that support Windows 7 (7th Generation i-series)
Z390 motherboards do not have drivers that support Windows 7 (8th Generation i-series)

For other brands you need to do the research, but it looks like Intel chipsets (for the 8000 series) are probably not supporting Windows 7 any longer.

Conclusion: Make sure that the motherboard that is chosen has drivers that support Windows 7 if that is what is important and make sure that the chipset properly supports your chosen processor.

If you do that then you are fine. In this case, support for Windows 7 is more important than having the latest and greatest processor. Note also that most of us who are not building a machine with the intention of creaming all gaming competition and one or two generations old is more than enough for what we do and offers the chance of looking for buys and saving some money.
