    I have an E8600 on a GA-EP45-UD3R board...will that combo run 8.1 (32 or 64)?

      I have conflicting reports of an E8600 (775 pin) CPU running ok on Windows 8.1. I am unable to find the answers I need from Microsoft nor Gigabyte sites. The mobo uses chip set P45. I am trying to continue using this old box and will do a clean install. Particularly, does this CPU support PAE, NX, and SSE2...a requirement for 8.1.
