Hey guys I just purchased a new Sandisk 240gb SSD PLUS and I wanted to install windows on it, but I was thinking of specifically Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. This has been the best experience for me and I have tested 8/10 and there's too many bugs from what I've seen.

Will my pc be fine with Windows 7 for maybe a few years because I will not upgrade my pc yet. I use my pc everyday for games (including new titles, will I be able to play them on win 7?) And I like to edit videos etc using Vegas pro.

My pc specifications:
i5 2500
8gb DDR3 RAM
GTX 1050 Ti
500w PSU
Sandisk SSD
Western digital HDD
 
Extended support for Windows 7 will end in Jan 14. 2020. After that time, there will be no more security updates for it, meaning it'll be vulnerable to any new security holes which are discovered (or have been discovered by not reported before then).

It's possible Microsoft may extend extended support for Win 7 like they did with XP. People haven't been switching away from Win 7 as quickly as Microsoft wants, so there may still be a significant installed userbase in 2020. If enough people are still using it, Microsoft may elect to continue extended support beyond that date. But there's no guarantee that will happen.

I don't think that matters for me, after I have installed the first updates, I disable it so then I don't need to do it ever again, j don't really install lots of programs so my pc isn't really vulnerable to malware?
