Why Windows 8? I don't really fancy upgrading, I'm quite happy with Win 7.

Why not? It's latest ? I think would be strange to not support Win 8? You can still use Win7.
Beside BF4 supports DirectX 11.2 and that is only with Win 8 and newest AMD cards (and maybe 7970), but if you use Nvidia, this doesn't matter because it's cards does not support DX11.2 yet. I also am happy with Win7 but maybe this can make me update to Win 8 later Smile

Well I've only just upgraded my card (gtx 760), so I won't be upgrading again for sometime. Think I'll be sticking to Win7 and directx 11.1.

Windows 7 has only partial support for DX11.1 which came with IE10. Windows 8 has full support for DX11.1 which BF4 will fully support. Thus recommended OS for BF4 is Windows 8.

But would the differences be worth upgrading for? I really don't like the look of the Win 8 interface! I actually quite like Win 7, but hated Vista. For me, it's not so much the price of upgrading but the time and hassle involved in installing it and learning the new interface.

We will see. Installed Windows 8 myself to get ready for BF4. I think 8.1 will ease this up a little.

Article about Win 8.1: http://www.extremetech.com/computing/159851-windows-8-1-desktop-review-its-finally-safe-to-upgrade-from-windows-7-folks

or more critical: http://www.zdnet.com/windows-8-1-close-but-no-cigar-7000017733/

And even 8.1 brings it closer to Win 7, with this separate program (5 dollars) you can make it exactly like Win 7:
