The people who told you that are high or something. The difference between Pro and Home edition performance wise is minimal. For a normal use and gaming system, Home is good enough. 

 

The only time you want Pro can pretty be simplified to:

  • You have more than 128GB of RAM. 
  • You can and want to take advantage of other Pro features such as BitLocker
  • Require domain joining
  • Both are priced similarly if you somehow score that.

Home and Pro editions perform the same. The primary difference for gamers is the ability to manage Windows Updates with Pro.

That jogged my memory and that seemed right... until I looked it up to sanity check and well plenty of forum posts say Pro is needed for dual socket systems. A page on Microsoft's website on the other hand... not sure what the heck is going on here.

Well RAM in that table contradicts what is listed on their other documentation. Just Microsoft things.

Yup. Pro and Home run all the same programs and apps. Microsoft just enables some buiness features if you buy Pro. There the same os other than those features that you probably wont use.

any software limitations (does x software run on x version of windows 10) are entirely the software's choice, and because game companies want big sales, they would be stupid for limiting that.

it only really comes into play with stuff like teamviewer licenses.

 

on the topic of hardware.. the only versions that are really different are 'pro for workstations', and whatever madness they run on AVD instances.

but those are for reasons that dont apply to a home computer AT ALL.

 

just regular home and pro (and enterprise for that matter) are essentially identical except for some business and security features an enterprise may want. again, nothing that affects your gaming desktop.

As people have told you repeatedly, it will not make a difference. 

 

I'm amused by the idea that you think games would run on the pro version of the OS (theoretically intended for serious business users) but not the home version (intended for personal users). 

Your "PC master race" thing is cringe.

If you consider yourself a power user and you want access to things like the local group policy editor or RDP, I'd recommend Pro. If you don't know what I'm talking about, Home is probably sufficient for your needs.

 

To the best of my knowledge, there is no impact on gaming performance between editions.
