Do I just put the Windows 8 disc in and hit "Install now" or do I need to do something else?

Well, I'd go back to Windows 7 personally.

To answer your question, though:
Backup anything you want to keep (games, documents, music, picutres, etttccccc......) to another harddrive, to DVDs, or flashdrives.

Then put the Windows 7/8 disc in your PC, restart your PC, and boot into the disc. Then format AND delete both the "System" partition and the partition your OS in on.
Then install.
