Have you tried the latest beta drivers for your GPU? I've heard the mouse lag issues are related to GPU drivers

This is why I love all the people that beta test new Windows versions for me.

Hmm, apparently it only happens in certain games. Can't say I've had any problems with BF3. I don't know why you want to go back to 7 though, apparently this problem was introduced with 8.1. Win8 should have any gaming advantages that 8.1 does for now (like DX11.1 for BF4).

Buy windows 8 for 15 bucks at release,

Install 8.1, 3 months after it releases and the major issues are ironed out.

TC's solution to his problems? Downgrade the entire OS.

To be fair, the mouse issue seems to be unfixable as of right now. You can reduce its effects with a few changes but not remove it entirely. Luckily it only affects games that don't use the mouse' raw data. Only a few games don't. I'm sure there will be some sort of hot fix soon but there are no good excuses for this.

It doesn't directly affect me right now but if it did, I'd be just as annoyed and would have reverted back to vanilla 8.

Which is more reasonable than downgrading to a 4 year old OS.
