Does OS Matter? (Can there be any compatibility issues with an OS?)


I've bought all the components for my PC except for my graphics card and right now I'm deciding between getting windows 10 or 11. The parts are from a few years ago (Ryzen 7 5800X, RTX 3070, Gigabyte B550 Board) and I'm wondering if older parts can not work as well with a certain OS.

    Personally, I'd choose Windows 10. It's been out for a while and is a bit more stable than Windows 11 at the moment. I actually downgraded back to 10 due to issues with 11 and AMD processors. Yes, they released a fix but I'll wait until Windows 11 is a bit more mature.
