Whats better os for performance? I believe 8 should be faster since its newer. But is it that much faster that its worth going through all the trouble people say windows 8 gives?

There is really no trouble. People complain about Metro and rightfully so. But if you just use classic shell or start8 (the best i've seen but cost around 20 bucks.. that is what I use now) you don't ever have to worry about metro again. I've seen the metro screen maybe 10 times in 8 months. The other differences are so minor I very seldom notice them. Its like a smoother win7. I get about 8 to 12 fps increase in Far Cry 3.

For gaming, Win 8 seems to have a bit of a performance advantage.

Windows 8 performs better. There really should be no dispute about this.

Pointing out your stupidity is not trolling
