Paint Tool SAI and Windows 8?

My trusty ol' Windows XP netbook is about to see what the inside of a trash can looks like, and my aunt put my new Dell laptop on layaway today. It's great; 6 GB RAM, 500 GB HD, DDR3 memory, and it has an amazing quad-core processor.
My only issue is that it's Windows 8. :stare:
The stores around here only sell Windows 8 now, and my aunt will not buy a computer online, especially after the recent issue with someone getting a hold of her credit card number and buying $74 worth of crap with it. I refuse to buy computers off of other people after the couple of sad excuses of HP Pavilions that I bought off someone a year ago.
Anyways, I use Paint Tool SAI for majority of my art. Will Windows 8 run SAI?
Also, for anyone good with games, is the computer that I described good for running The Sims 3 with the Supernatural expansion pack and Minecraft? Not at the same time of course.

It's been reported working on Windows 8.

Gaming is going to depend on the graphics processor in the laptop.

Okay, good. Thanks! ouo
Apparently this one's got the best graphics processor out of most of the laptops in the store, so maybe it will work.

Not entirely sure. It might say here. www.newegg.com/Product/Product…
I'm recovering from being sick, so I'm kinda derping as far as computers go at the moment. XD

That's an alright GPU. It's not going to do much in the way of gaming, but you should be alright in non-demanding games. It will run minecraft with lowish settings, optifine will help a lot. The sims... well... it might barely do it.
